The first FASRI Roundtable for 2012 will cover the newly proposed standard on Revenue Recognition.  FASB practice fellows Michael Breen (KPMG) and Heather Harris (General Electric) will lead the discussion.  Michael is a senior manager at KPMG and Heather is an Assistant Controller in the Global Mergers and Acquisitions department at General Electric.  Both Michael and Heather have been active in the Revenue Recognition project over the past several months and can provide answers to how the new proposal is likely to affect revenue recognition practices.  Revenue recognition is one of the most fundamental issues in accounting and affects many of the topics that we teach and research.  I anticipate the session will be informative and very worthwhile.

 The Roundtable is scheduled at 4pm eastern time on Wednesday, January 18.
