The —interaktiv—is now online. (Find past issues here.)

The theme of this issue is the 25th Anniversary of the GLD. We hope you enjoy journeying into the past and seeing how far the GLD has come since its founding days.

Here’s a glimpse of what’s inside:

  • (Translation) Notes from the Homeland from our European Coordinator, Ellen Yutzy Glebe
  • ATA 62 Conference Recap by Petra Rieker
  • Minutes of the 2021 Annual Meeting
  • Interviews and recaps of the last 25 years from some of the GLD’s founding members and early administrators
  • A review of the Dictionary of Accounting and Financial Reporting (IAS/IFRS and German GAAP) by Bettina Stoke-Borchert
  • And much more!

Happy reading!
