On Tuesday, Sept. 10, APPA will hold a webinar, "GASB 68 - Pension Accounting," from 2 to 3:30 p.m., Eastern time, led by Jodi Dobson, manager of the Energy and Utilities Group at Baker Tilly Virchow Krause in Madison, Wis.
In 2012, the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) issued Statement No. 67 for pension plans and No. 68 for employers providing pension benefits. This webinar will explore the change in actuarial methods and assumptions, deferral and amortization periods for changes in benefits and assumptions or differences between actual and expected performance, as well as discuss the new reporting requirements related to pension liabilities and related disclosures.
Dobson will also discuss the potential impacts of these changes on funding requirements, budgets and rate recovery and highlight some of the issues to be considered by management in advance of implementation.
The webinar is worth 0.2 continuing education units, 1.5 professional development hours and 1.5 continuing professional education credits.
