Dear Members of the Accounting Behavior and Organizations Section,
Our conference in San Antonio was smaller than usual given the unique circumstances, but all the more personal and engaging. Scott Asay did a commendable job leading the ABO through a year full of uncertainties, while Scott Emmett and Steph Grant put in a herculean effort to provide our section with an unmatched in-person experience. Thank you to the entire executive committee for overseeing our section’s health and operations amidst unprecedented times.
Looking forward, I am excited to continue supporting our mission of encouraging excellence in research and education at the intersection of accounting and behavioral and organizational sciences. Behavioral Research in Accounting, our section’s journal...
The 2021 Accounting Behavior and Organizations (ABO) Section Research Conference took place in San Antonio, TX last week from October 7-9.

As you attend future AAA in-person meetings, continue the connections by posting to #AAAbacktogether.
