Objectives

The Western Region ascribes to the goals and objectives stated in Article II of the American Accounting Association By-Laws.

It is our goal to encourage exchange of ideas among our members related to accounting research, education, and environmental forces facing the profession. More specifically, we strive to:

  1. Facilitate a broad-based member participation in the activities and programs of the American Accounting Association;
  2. Sponsor broad-based research and educational programs for the benefit of its members;
  3. Offer continuing education programs that shall be coordinated with the AAA's director of education;
  4. Tailor each meeting to the specific needs and desires of the regional members, and strive to draw on the talents of a broad spectrum of members in the Region; and
  5. Publish the proceedings of each meeting.
