The FASB Outlook is designed to keep stakeholders informed about key FASB projects and activities. It presents current accounting and financial reporting issues in a “plain-English,” user-friendly, format designed to provide quick access to stories of interest to the busy professional.

We created the FASB Outlook in response to your requests for sources of high-level information about our projects in progress, as well as more forward-looking insights and pieces that address how the FASB’s endeavors may affect your business or organization. Its interactive, e-newsletter format also enables you to provide direct input on articles in the issue, as well as other topics of interest to you that you think we should know about.

The FASB Outlook will arrive in your e-mail inbox every three months—and whenever there’s important breaking news to share. Regular features will include:
  • From the Chairman’s Desk, a column featuring Chairman Russ Golden’s insights on key issues facing the FASB
  • What You Need To Know About..., a briefing on FASB projects that should be on your radar, and
  • A column featuring Board and staff perspectives on issues that impact investors and other users of financial statements.
Videos and profiles of FASB members will highlight each edition of the FASB Outlook, which also will include an up-to-the minute calendar of upcoming FASB meetings and events. Each feature will provide links to new and existing content, video, and educational materials on our updated FASB website for those interested in taking a deeper dive into the more technical issues.

Lastly, the FASB Outlook provides additional opportunities to stay connected, comment, and get involved in the FASB’s many 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 input and to tell us a little more about yourself so we can tailor it to better meet your needs.

Thanks again for reading the FASB Outlook. We hope you enjoy it and let us know what you think.
