I'm actually confused about this, because I distinctly remember hearing a few years ago that the accounts report was no longer going to be read from the platform (when they collapsed the announcements into the first SM part, as NVR2L8 mentioned), but the congregation I'm in usually seems to read the accounts report. At first I thought it was only because they were low on funds and desperate, but the last report was actually quite in the black, so I'm wondering if there was a reversal shortly after the Society first said the accounts were no longer going to be read to the congregation.
Edit: Thanks stuckinarut2, I guess it's not my imagination that the rule was changed. I remember basically saying at the time the accounts report was supposed to not be read, "Well that's a terrible idea." I'm not surprised if they issued a reversal based on a general outcry by the elders.
