GASB Offers Webcasts of Public Meetings

October 8, 2013 ( - The Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) will provide live video webcasting of the Board’s in-person public meetings.

Previously, the only ways to tune into GASB’s public meetings were to attend in person or through telephone conferencing.

Beginning October 30 and 31, teleconferences, which are deliberative meetings held by telephone between in-person GASB meetings, will be audio-only webcast. Live webcasting of both in-person public meetings and teleconferences will be hosted on the GASB website.   

“This will allow our stakeholders from across the nation to tune in to all the board’s standard-setting activities for state and local governments. We anticipate that this will lead to increased participation in our due process,” said GASB Chairman David A. Vaudt.

The GASB is the independent, not-for-profit organization formed in 1984 that establishes and revises financial accounting and reporting standards for state and local governments.
