Purpose of the meetings
The round-table meetings are an important part of the boards’ due process on the revised Exposure Drafts. The meetings will provide an opportunity for those that have submitted a comment letter, or who still intend to submit a comment letter, to discuss the proposals with the boards in further detail. To ensure that the boards receive input covering a variety of perspectives, they are seeking participation from preparers, auditors, investors, and others.
Participant registration for the roundtables is now closed.
Observer registration for the roundtables is now closed.
Webcasts and recordings
Wherever possible, we will post an audio recording of the meeting to the FASB and the IASB websites shortly after the meeting. In some cases, a video/audio live webcast will also be available.
