The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is the prime regulator of capital markets in the United States. Whether your company is an SEC registrant, contemplating a securities offering or you are a CPA who provides services to an SEC client, you need to stay up to date on what is going on at the SEC, especially as Chair Clayton continues to implement his agenda. In this quarterly two-hour update, we'll explore the key topics on the SEC agenda, such as non-GAAP disclosures, common comment letter themes, SEC enforcement activities, implementation of new SEC rules and regulations, and other initiatives to both safeguard investors as well as increase access to markets. Also, with so many new accounting Updates becoming effective over the next few years, we'll explore recent SEC guidance on SAB 74 disclosures and other SEC feedback on implementing new standards that will be valuable for both registrants and non-filers alike. If you are involved with SEC matters or clients, or just want to stay on top of the latest accounting regulatory news, this is the course for you.
