FASB, GASB Launch New Newsletters

The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) has launched the FASB Outlook, a new quarterly, electronic newsletter designed to keep stakeholders informed about key FASB projects and activities. The FASB Outlook presents current accounting and financial reporting issues in a plain-English format designed to provide quick access to stories of interest to busy professionals who are not technical accountants.

Stakeholders can subscribe to the e-newsletter at no cost. Features from the inaugural issue can be found on the FASB website.

In addition, the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) will issue the GASB Outlook, a new e-newsletter dedicated to keeping GASB stakeholders of issues in state and local government accounting and financial reporting.
