MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
We had a successful 2017 Annual Meeting in San Diego, CA. I am excited that we have over 130 TLC Members engaged in various board and committee positions for the 2017-2018 year. The annual meeting program contained several TLC committee initiatives. Committee Chairs are contacting their respective committe members and brainstorming new ideas or following through with previous ideas for next year’s program.
The annual meeting kicked off with the TLC breakfast on Monday morning with the award winners being the highlight of the breakfast. We are proud to recognize that two of the three J. Michael Cook Prize winners are TLC members – Cathy J. Scott and Susan M. Curtis. The winners of the Outstanding Instructional Contribution in Accounting Award sponsored by the Deloitte Foundation are Katherine Campbell and Duane Helleloid. The winners of the Outstanding Research in Accounting Education Award sponsored by the EY Foundation are Anne Christensen, Jane Cote, and Claire Kamm Latham. Alan Reinstein 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!
