Hear what participants from the November 7 presentation of the 18th Annual Governmental GAAP Update are saying…

  • “Once again, the GFOA’s Annual Governmental GAAP Update provided a wealth of useful information to our finance professionals here in the Douglas County Clerk/Comptroller’s office. And, since we view it as a group, we were able to get the discounted rate as we were joined by members of our state association. The annual update is a great way to offer intensive training in what is new in our profession and vital information about some of the more complex issues in financial statement preparation.”
    • Kathleen A. Hall, Chief Deputy, Douglas County Clerk/Comptroller's office, Nebraska

  • “The GFOA continues to set the gold standard for CPE for government finance professionals. Stephen Gauthier delivered another superb update of recent changes in professional standards in a fast-paced and easy-to-understand format. This is easily one of the best CPE values of the year, and I highly recommend it to anyone involved in preparing or using government financial statements.”
    • Stephen W. Blann, CPA, CGFM, CGMA, Director of Governmental Audit Quality, Rehmann Robson, Grand Rapids, Michigan

  • “Great presentation by a great speaker on very useful information. Time went by very quickly.”
    • William G. Schmidt, Business Manager/Treasurer, Skokie Park District, Illinois


  • “The Utah Government Finance Officers Association has hosted a group viewing of the Annual Governmental GAAP Update broadcast for many years. It is an event our members look forward to every year. I believe it is an essential part of keeping current with the ever-changing world of government finance.”
    • Dean Lundell, President, Utah Government Finance Officers Association


  • “We participate in the Governmental GAAP Update each year and as a manager, I use it as a cost effective and efficient training tool. Stephen Gauthier presents the information in layman’s terms and in a clear and concise manner. The panel also gives us viewers a chance to hear questions, which we ourselves, may need answers to for our own respective governments."
