Letter from the President

Evelyn A. McDowell

Greetings!

As we approach the end of the 2016 academic year and the upcoming American Accounting Association (AAA) Meeting in San Diego, CA (August 6-9, 2017), we are reminded that it is time to reflect on the upcoming events, this year’s Diversity Section’s accomplishments, and on the work that remains to be done.

We are pleased to report that during the upcoming 2017 AAA annual meeting the Diversity Section will sponsor three sessions. One of the sessions is a panel discussion (Monday, August 7) which will feature three distinguished leaders of the profession to talk about “Making Diversity Real.” Please be sure to attend this and all our concurrent sessions. The details are listed in this newsletter.
