MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Dear TLC Section Members
First, I would like to thank Natalie Churyk for her service as TLC President these past two years. Natalie loves this organization and she has increased member involvement and encouraged participation by TLC members in the Annual Meeting during her tenure. Thank you, Natalie! I would also like to thank the TLC Committees on research and teaching who represented us well in the annual meeting program. These Committees will continue brainstorming new ideas or following through with previous ideas for next year’s program.
We kicked off the 2018 Annual Meeting in National Harbor, MD with the TLC breakfast on Monday morning, August 6, to celebrate the TLC award winners. We could not be more pleased that all three of the J. Michael Cook Prize winners are TLC members – Carolyn Hughes, Marsha Huber and Robert (Bob) Allen. The winners of the Outstanding Instructional Contribution in Accounting Award sponsored by the Deloitte Foundation are Poh-Sun Seow and Gary Pan and an Honorable Mention for this award went to Melissa Larson, Troy Lewis and Brian Spilker. The winners of the Outstanding Research in Accounting Education Award sponsored by the EY Foundation are Karen Pincus, David Stout, James Sorensen, Kevin Stocks and Raef Lawson. Tim Fogarty was the recipient of the TLC Hall of Honor Award sponsored by the KPMG Foundation. Congratulations to all of the winners and a warm thank you to our award sponsors! More information about the awards are included in the newsletter on pages 9-11. The third annual TLC Colloquium will occur in Dallas Texas on November 9 and 10, 2018. Cathy Scott, Billie Cunningham, Kimberly Church, Karen Osterheld, and Wendy Tietz have arranged amazing sessions for both research and teaching tracks. A huge thank you to the KPMG Foundation for sponsorship of this event again this year. For more information, refer to the newsletter’s pages 3-6.
I am looking forward to working with TLC’s outstanding executive team including Natalie Churyk (Northern Illinois University), Past President; Bette Kozlowski (KPMG), VP Practice; Karen Osterheld (Bentley University), VP Academic; Cindy Bolt-Lee (The Citadel), Treasurer; Claire Kamm Latham (Washington State University-Vancouver), Secretary; and Bambi Hora (University of Central Oklahoma), Council Representative.
Thanks to all of our members for your support of the TLC Section and our best to you as you complete the Fall semester.
