At the October 2019 GASAC meeting, Phyllis Resnick of the Colorado Futures Center presented to the GASB staff about GRA organizations. Her presentation covered GRA history as an organization, what current organizations do, and how they use GASB financial statements in their research. You can find her attached presentation here.
