I joined the "American Society of Woman's Accountants". Just in time for the name change to "Accounting and Financial Women's Alliance".
This week we had a presentation on IFRS, International Financial Reports Standards. IFRS is used throughout the world except in the US where US GAAP. There is an urgency for the US to adopt the IFRS because of the growth in global financial markets. We discussed the differences between the two financial systems and the inpact that has on how you understand a business. Very interesting!
