Friday, November 8, 2002; San Francisco Marriott Hotel
This conference brings together accounting standard setters, enforcement officials, corporate financial executives, and professional and academic accountants to discuss current issues in financial accounting and corporate reporting. The format is an open one so that members of the audience can address their concerns to the speakers and panalists.
U.S. Congressman James Greenwood will give the keynote address. Representatives of the Financial Accounting Standards Board will report on current and emerging issues at the FASB and describe the progress toward the resolution of these issues. The Securities and Exchange Commission will be represented at the conference by a former commissioner, the Deputy Chief Accountant, and the Deputy Director, Division of Enforcement, who will report on recent developments and on plans for the future. Members of the Committee on Corporate Reporting of Financial Executives International as well as members of the accounting profession will be involved in these discussions.
This year's conference also includes sessions on stock options and off-balance sheet financing. The accounting for stock options has received heightened attention in recent months; both sides of the debate will be represented here. The session on off-balance financing will review developments that have been in the news lately, including the new Exposure Draft by the FASB on the consolidation of special-purpose entities.
