Luncheon (ticket required) Speaker: Nancy Bagranoff, AAA President-Elect Thought Leadership in Accounting: Then and Now
The American Accounting Association (AAA) has a long history of thought leadership in accounting, beginning perhaps with the first publication of The Accounting Review in 1926. Today this thought leadership continues as members of the AAA advance knowledge and weigh in on important topics such as International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), Extensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL), fair value accounting, international accounting education and auditing standards, among others. There are many past and current examples of AAA thought leadership, both as an organization and by its individual members. Now we need to look ahead to the AAA’s role as a thought leader in a global economy.
