One webcast series, The CFO Roundtable, will address current topics and issues facing CFOs and controllers, including timely topics like off-balance sheet financing, auditing, ERISA, and xBRL – just to name a few. The second series, The SEC Quarterly Update, will take place approximately two weeks prior to the end of each calendar quarter and discuss current SEC regulatory, accounting and reporting, and Division of Corporate Finance issues.

“Today’s financial executive needs a trusted resource to turn to for critical and timely information,” states John Morrow, CPA and Vice President at the AICPA. “The combination of the AICPA’s technical resources and the editorial team’s knowledge of today’s financial issues give financial executives a real resource for staying abreast of current developments.”

Ms. Mimi Citarella, General Manager for states, “We have received overwhelming acclaim for using webcasts to deliver quality content. Webcasts save time and money while delivering solutions for executives and staffers who have to make ever more complex fiduciary and regulatory decisions in this climate of change, yet are under enormous time-pressures to do so.”
