The GASB Outlook presents current accounting and financial reporting issues in a plain-English, user-friendly format designed to provide quick access to information you need to know about.

We created the GASB Outlook to provide high-level information about our projects in progress as well as forward-looking insights and articles that address how the GASB’s endeavors may affect you. Its interactive, e-newsletter format enables you to provide direct input on both the articles and other topics of interest that you think we should know about.

The GASB Outlook will arrive in your e-mail inbox every quarter. The GASB Report, its companion electronic subscription service, will address breaking technical news. Regular features of the GASB Outlook will include:
  • From the Chairman’s Desk—a column featuring Chairman Dave Vaudt’s insights on key issues facing the GASB
  • What You Need To Know About...—a briefing on GASB projects that should be on your radar, and
  • Stakeholder Focus—a section featuring perspectives on issues that impact the GASB’s stakeholders.
Each edition of the GASB Outlook will include videos addressing key issues you need to know about, as well as a calendar of upcoming GASB meetings and events. Each issue also will provide links to new and existing content, video, and educational material on the GASB website.

Finally, the GASB Outlook provides additional opportunities to stay connected, comment, and get involved in GASB initiatives. Your input is critical to the standard-setting process, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to share your feedback.

Speaking of feedback, we hope you’ll take the time to share your opinions about this first issue of the GASB Outlook—so we can tailor it to better meet your needs.

Thanks again for reading our inaugural issue. We hope you enjoy it and let us know what you think.
