What is the SEC Professionals Group?
The SEC Professionals Group is a community of professionals who actively prepare and file financial reports with the SEC. The purpose of the group is to foster communication among members on matters of professional interest. The group meets quarterly to discuss complex reporting issues including XBRL, IFRS preparation and implementing new accounting rules.
The group is exclusively for external reporting professionals.
This is an invitation-only, members-only group.
The SEC Professionals Group has over 2500 individual members from approximately 1500 companies across the country. There is no charge to join the group or to attend meetings. Members have access to a confidential membership list to facilitate one to one communication on accounting and disclosure issues. Many members participate in our meetings remotely by web or telephone. The founding members of the group created a policy that only in-house SEC reporting professionals are invited to be members, auditors, consultants, and vendors are not included as members.
We are actively growing local chapters in the Cleveland and Detroit areas and welcome your participation!
