Dear fellow GNP colleagues,
I am honored to serve as the 2016-17 President of the Government and nonprofit (GNP) Section of the American Accounting Association (AAA). Serving as your President is a tremendous honor for me. I have looked forward to this role for a number of years. Membership and participation in the GNP section has been a fulfilling experience. Volunteering for the section and the support I have received in my research activities has had a pivotal role in my academic career. The friendships I have developed over the years with many of you is a very special part of my academic and personal life. This year I want to continue the great work we have done over the years and expand the opportunities for our growing membership to participate in the volunteer activities of the section. I encourage all members to help us build this website into a valuable and convenient portal for members, and a place where the public can learn about our activities.
