    Who is Accountable for the National Debt?

    The USA's National Debt has long been a matter of growing concern, but we will soon reach a point where government must stop playing political football with the issue, and take action to save our future.

    Paul Stebbins, former Chairman and CEO of a Fortune 500 company, and the Campaign to Fix the Debt, are working to inform and mobilize citizens to help effect change in Washington. Join Paul for a discussion about who is accountable for the National Debt...and how accounting can help us fix it.

2015 Western Region Meeting

Call for Volunteers

Please consider volunteering to support the 2015 Western Region Meeting in one or more of the following capacities:

Paper/Case Submission Reviewer (for Paper and Dialogue Sessions)
The first and most important decision that the Paper/Case Submission Reviewer must make is whether or not the work is sufficiently advanced to be accepted for the meeting. Additionally, the reviewer is encouraged to provide supplemental comments explaining that choice, and indicating the state of advancement of the paper - whether it is a near-completed work, or if it is in a state of needed development. This information will help the submitting author with his/her development of the work, and, if it is to be accepted, it will assist the Paper Chair in deciding the best possible session in which to include the submission for presentation.

Paper Session Moderator
The Moderator will have logistical responsibilities during the Paper Session, keeping the agreed upon time schedule for each paper presentation and discussion, as well as ensuring the session starts and ends punctually.

Paper Session Discussant
The Discussant will be responsible for preparing paper feedback and presenting the feedback immediately following the presentation made by the paper's author. The discussant will have approximately 10-15 minutes.

Dialogue Facilitator for Dialogues Session
The Dialogue Facilitator has both logistical and facilitator responsibilities. Logistics include communicating with all of the session's presenters before the meeting to make sure that all presenters share developmental questions about their own works with each other, read each others' papers, and make notes on each others' work for discussion. The Dialogue Facilitator uses the author-submitted questions, as well as his/her own notes regarding each paper, to promote discussion. Also the Dialogue Facilitator must keep the agreed upon time schedule for each paper and ensure the session starts and ends punctually.
