Statement No. 68
Accounting and Financial Reporting for Pensions—an amendment of GASB Statement No. 27 This statement is new to most of us this year.  Barry Skinner, our current FGFOA president, has shared Orange County’s pension disclosure regarding the Florida Retirement System in an effort to help us.  Many of us have found that it is easier to have someone else’s disclosure to work from than to begin from a blank paper.  We hope you find this information to be helpful.

Ethics Training for Municipal Officers
Beginning this month, the FLC University and local/regional leagues are co-sponsoring Continuing Education in Ethics workshops for municipal officers at locations around the state. Click here to view the dates and locations currently scheduled. These workshops will be standardized in presentation and taught by city attorneys.

The four-hour course is designed to comply with the requirement for elected officials to receive four hours of ethics-specific training annually under Chapter 112. 3142, Florida Statutes, effective January 1, 2015. In addition, the League will also offer this training at the annual conference and other statewide meetings.
