Thank you for your award nominations.

2020 Nominations Deadline: March 15, 2020

Recipients Announced: July 1, 2020
Awards Presented: AAH Business Meeting at AAA Annual Meeting (8/9/20 at 7:00 PM)

The Academy has a number of prestigious awards presented every year.  Please review the descriptions and nominate a colleague or yourself.

Each year, the administrator of the Academy will solicit nominations for all annual awards. The review and selection of awards will be completed by the Executive Committee with consultation of others as needed with the exception of the Alfred R. Roberts Memorial Research Award which will have its own unique selection committee. All awards recipients are to be announced to the membership via email, published in the Notebook and announced at a business meeting. For those awards for which a plaque is included, an in-person presentation at a conference will be made when possible. Some, but not all awards, include a small monetary award.

Letter from the President

This is an exciting time for the Academy as we leverage our successful past to expand our reach as a 21st century global organization.

We have substantially completed the transition from a standalone entity during early 2018 and we are now operating as a section within the American Accounting Association (AAA). A transition team has worked diligently since late 2015 to transfer the operations and dedicated resources of the Academy of Accounting Historians to a section within the AAA structure and we were welcomed at the AAA Centennial meeting in August 2016 as the newest section of the AAA.
