GASB to Offer Webcasts of Public Board Meetings

By Jason Bramwell
 
On October 8, one week after launching a new, updated website, the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) said it will provide live video webcasting of its in-person public meetings, beginning with the October 30-31 meeting.
 
Teleconferences, which are deliberative meetings held by telephone between in-person GASB meetings, will be audio-only webcasts. Live webcasting of both in-person public meetings and teleconferences will be hosted on the GASB website.
 
"The new and improved GASB website, coupled with recent improvements to our office technology, prompted our decision to provide video webcasting of the board's public meetings and audio-only webcasts of teleconferences," GASB Chairman David Vaudt said in a written statement. "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."
 
Previously, the only ways to tune into GASB's public meetings were to attend in person or through telephone conferencing. Stakeholders interested in attending future meetings in person can continue to register on the GASB website.
