The International Accounting Standards Board is recruiting one or two users of insurance company financial statements to join an insurance working group.

The IASB, London, formed a working group in 2004 that already includes insurance company executives, analysts, actuaries, auditors and regulators.

The group now wants to add financial statement users.

The group notes that it will not pay the working group members and will not pay their travel expenses or other expenses.

The IASB will use electronic mail and video conferences to handle most communications with working group members, but members may have to travel to London twice a year from 2008 to 2010 for 2-day in-person meetings, the group says.
