President's Letter


Steve Stubben
2022-2023 FARS Section President


Dear FARS Members and Visitors,

The Financial Accounting and Reporting Section was created in 1993 with 49 members as a provisional section of the AAA. The section has since grown to nearly 1,500 members from around the world!

The original mission still stands today, which is “to give greater attention to financial accounting and reporting, and to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of education, research, and professional practice by: (1) disseminating and evaluating teaching methods and materials; (2) encouraging, facilitating, and publicizing research interests and projects; and (3) creating opportunities for interchange and cooperation between academics and practitioners.”

It's truly amazing to reflect on all that’s been done over the past 29 years to fulfill this mission, and the extensive efforts by so many volunteers and AAA staff over the years.
