Last week, FASB’s parent body, the Financial Accounting Foundation (FAF), announced
the appointment of Charles H. (‘Chuck’) Noski as Chairman of the Financial Accounting Standards Advisory Council (FASAC).
Noski, appointed for a three-year term beginning Jan. 1, 2012, succeeds Dennis H. Chookaszian as FASAC Chairman.
FASAC generally meets four times a year, with its most recent meeting taking place last week.
BNA’s Denise Lugo reported on remarks of the current FASAC Chairman, Chookaszian, at last week's FASAC meeting, in her article FASAC Chairman: MF Global's Accounting Method More Leveraged Than Lehman's (subscription required).
