Discover why the FAS Section is one of the AAA's fastest growing sections.
Forensic accounting touches all areas of the AAA: financial, behavioral, taxation, auditing, not-for-profit, information systems, international accounting, and management accounting. The Forensic Accounting Section (FAS) enables members to share classroom best practices and provides a linkage between the classroom and practitioners in an inclusive environment.
The annual FAS mid-year conferences provides the opportunity to present research, but is much more than research. Former speakers and panelists include Aaron Beam, former Controller of HealthSouth and author of The Wagon to Disaster; Greg Regan, Hemming Morse, San Francisco, CA, USA; Jordan Thomas, Labaton Sucharow, the attorney who was the main writer of the whistleblower legislation; editors of journals; trial lawyers and expert witnesses; and even a former fraudster.
The FAS is well represented at the AAA Annual Meetings. There are at least four concurrent sessions (some of which are panels), a fun happy hour, and (beginning in 2012) a Forensic Accounting Section Boot Camp.
