Out with the Old, In with the New: From US GAAP to IFRS (Internat'l Financial Reporting Standards)

FREE webinar available exclusively to members. Please register by February 18.

113 countries have already adopted International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), and many more are on track to do so by 2011.  The USA is the only major capital market without a formal adoption plan, but the momentum to adopt IFRS in the USA is continuing.  The SEC recently issued a proposed roadmap that potentially requires mandatory adoption of IFRS for large companies beginning in 2014. 

Whether you are responsible for your company’s financial statements, do financial analysis of them, or provide consulting for them, you won’t want to miss our webcast featuring Colleen Cunningham on the roadmap to IFRS, what companies should be thinking about regarding their own potential implementation efforts, and the lessons learned from countries who have already adopted IFRS. 

Date & Time: Friday, February 20, 2009 12:00 Noon – 1:00 PM (Eastern Time)

Price: **EXCLUSIVELY AND FREE FOR MEMBERS OF THE WHARTON CLUB OF NJ AND Members OF OTHER WHARTON ALUMNI CLUBS IN THE WHARTON NETWORK**

Important additional logistical details will be sent in a subsequent email to registrants.
