Chair presents the award(s) at the AAA Annual Meeting
If the Chair has any questions about the charge or responsibilities of this committee, s/he should contact the Chief Executive Officer, the President, or the Committee's Board of Directors Liaison.
Current Committee members who are nominated for the award will be asked to either recuse themselves from the Committee or remove their nomination from consideration.
All nominees nominated for a given year’s award – who are not selected for that year’s award – will be automatically considered by the Notable and Distinguished Contributions to Accounting Literature Award Screening Committee for the award for the following two (2) years – as long as the nominated work meets the publishing requirements (see award criteria for details).
Nominees who were not selected for the 2022 Notable Contributions to Accounting Literature Award will be considered by the Notable and Distinguished Contributions to Accounting Literature Award Screening Committee during the screening process for the 2023 Award and, if not chosen for the 2023 Award, will also be considered for the 2024 Award. At the end of the selection process for the 2024 Award, if a qualified nominee has not been chosen as the award recipient or has not been re-nominated, he/she will no longer be considered for the award.
