To volunteer for this committee, please click HERE.


As the American Accounting Association imagines our future, the Membership Advisory Committee will continue to develop the vision of being Thought Leaders in Accounting by: 

  • Encouraging Tenure Track, Professionally Oriented Faculty, Global Scholars, Two-Year Faculty, and Doctoral Students to engage in AAA activities.
  • Promoting non-member engagement by reaching out to non-members to encourage membership in AAA and Segments.
  • Welcoming new members and developing ideas for retaining them.


  • New Committee members are appointed prior to the Annual Meeting by the AAA Management Team with terms of three years for continuity purposes.
  • The Committee consists of nine members, including the Chair, serving staggered three-year terms.
  • In years when the current Chair will be finishing his/her term, the AAA Management Team will appoint a Chair-elect from among the new appointees.
  • The Chair-elect serves for one year, then as Chair for two years.
  • An ex-officio student member may also serve on the Committee for a one or two year appointment.

Estimated Time Commitment

  • The Committee members could expect to spend approximately 1-5 hours per year with additional hours required as needed based on membership-related activities.
  • The Committee meets as needed at the discretion of the Chair.


  • Fulfill the Committee charge as above.
  • 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.
  • The Chair will have the opportunity three times every term-year to prepare and send a progress report which will be available for the Board of Directors to review at their next meeting. This report should include accomplishments and suggested modifications and should be sent to the AAA President, the committee’s Board of Directors Liaison, and Governance Manager, Barbara Gutierrez (
