Current Financial Reporting Issues Conference


Operating in this constantly changing environment is something preparers need to not only manage, but embrace. Responding effectively to these changes is a necessary component to staying ahead of the curve, but can be a challenge for preparers with limited time and resources.
FEI's 36th annual Current Financial Reporting Issues (CFRI) Conference, November 13 and 14 in NYC will shed light on the impact disruptive forces can have on companies and how finance organizations can respond effectively.
During this two-day event, learn from the shared experiences of other controllers, regulators, auditors, and standard setters as they address the top issues impacting the financial reporting community including innovative technology, deregulation, new accounting standards, changing dynamics of talent development, digitization of the finance function and the effects of the rapidly evolving political environment.
