Webinar Offers Updates on Accounting Rules and Practices


Are concerns pertaining to cloud computing, credit losses and/or episodic television arrangements being raised in your company’s C-Suite? If so, a Tuesday webinar featuring professionals from Ernst & Young LLP could be right up your alley.

Professionals from EY will discuss the latest FASB updates on the three topics during an hourlong webinar presented by MFM, the Media Financial Management Association.

The event is scheduled for Tuesday, December 11, at 1pm Eastern.

Presenters include Doreen Levine, a Senior Manager in EY’s Financial Accounting Advisory Services (FAAS) practice; FAAS Senior Manager Alexander Friend and Manager Brian Grant; and Samantha Tully, EY’s Media & Entertainment National Accounting industry resident.

“The new FASB (Financial Accounting Standards Board) rules will affect year-end financial reporting for 2018 and beyond,” said Mary M. Collins, President & CEO of MFM and BCCA, the media industry’s credit association. “Thanks to the assistance of EY’s M&E professionals, we are able to offer MFM members and others insight into the changing regulations and ways to align resources and move forward strategically in the coming year.”

Eligible participants in the Distance Learning Seminar may receive up to one CPE credit toward their certified public accounting (CPA) license. MFM is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors.
