The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) has announced the launch of an educational 'IN FOCUS' webcast series focusing on financial accounting and reporting developments of importance to the FASB's stakeholders, such as recently issued final standards, Exposure Drafts, or changes to the US GAAP Financial Reporting Taxonomy.

The first in the series, entitled IN FOCUS: FASB Update for Nonpublic Entities (link to FASB website) will take place on Friday, June 17, from 1:00 to 2:40 p.m. EDT (US). The webcast will include topics such as the FASB's strategic review of standard setting for nonpublic entities, progress on the FASB-IASB convergence programme, and other active projects or recently-issued standards of interest to nonpublic entities. A subsequent webcast focused on the US GAAP Financial Reporting Taxonomy will be held on Wednesday, June 22, 2011.

Continuing professional education (CPE) credit is available for those participating in the live broadcasts. Click for FASB announcement (link to FASB website).
