New Task Force on Accounting Changes Being Formed, Needs Volunteers

05/11/2010 —

Volunteer Today!
A number of significant changes are being proposed by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB). It is anticipated that proposals will be circulated early this summer, with a very short window for comments.

The CAS would like to recruit volunteers for an Accounting Changes Task Force that will be charged with evaluating the various proposed changes that come from the IASB and FASB. Although there will be a bit of a time crunch, some work has already been done on this topic and its results will be available for use by the Task Force. The findings from the Task Force will be turned into a report and provided to the American Academy of Actuaries as input on their responses.

If you are interested in participating on the Task Force or have any questions, please contact Cheri Widowski at cwidowski@casact.org.
