Thank you for your interest in hosting a Financial Accounting Foundation (FAF), Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), and/or Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) speaker at your upcoming event.

We make every effort to accommodate as many speaking engagements as we can. However, due to time and resource constraints, we generally limit our participation to events that are sponsored by organizations that fall into one of the following categories:

  • Professional accounting/industry associations, and/or not-for-profit organizations that directly serve our primary constituent base (including, but not limited to, investors and other financial statement users, analysts, CPAs and other private/public sector financial statement preparers, auditors, practitioners, and municipal bond buyers/sellers)
  • Professional accounting firms
  • Colleges, universities, and other academic organizations
  • Federal, state, and local government organizations and/or regulatory bodies.

With rare exceptions, we are unable to provide speakers to “for-profit” companies or organizations that primarily exist to package and sell business seminars.

We also require organizations to agree to our terms and conditions, and to agree to reimburse the FAF, FASB, and/or GASB for the speaker’s basic overnight travel expenses (unless prior arrangements have been made with FAF/FASB/GASB leadership to waive these expenses).

Please be advised that all decisions to accept or decline speaking invitations, as made by leaders of the FAF, FASB, and GASB or their designees, are final.
