Discover why the FAS Section is one of the AAA's fastest growing sections.

Forensic accounting touches all areas of the AAA: financial, behavioral, taxation, auditing, not-for-profit, information systems, international accounting, and management accounting. The Forensic Accounting Section (FAS) enables members to share classroom best practices and provides a linkage between the classroom and practitioners in an inclusive environment.

The annual FAS mid-year conferences provides the opportunity to present research, but is much more than research. Former speakers and panelists include Aaron Beam, former Controller of HealthSouth and author of The Wagon to Disaster; Greg Regan, Hemming Morse, San Francisco, CA, USA; Jordan Thomas, Labaton Sucharow, the attorney who was the main writer of the whistleblower legislation; editors of journals; trial lawyers and expert witnesses; and even a former fraudster.

The FAS is well represented at the AAA Annual Meetings. There are at least four concurrent sessions (some of which are panels), a fun happy hour, and (beginning in 2012) a Forensic Accounting Section Boot Camp.

You are encouraged to join FAS today. If you are not an AAA member, you may join the AAA and FAS online. If you are an AAA member but would like to join the FAS Section, you may download a section member application and either fax, mail, or email it to:

Editor's Message

JFAR Editor’s Message

As the incoming editor of the Journal of Forensic Accounting Research (JFAR), I take this opportunity to wish you a happy, healthy, safe and prosperous New Year! First and foremost, I would like to thank Professor Charles Bailey for getting JFAR started and maintaining its good quality. My sincere gratitude is to the Forensic Accounting Section (FAS) of the AAA for reposing confidence in my scholarly abilities to serve as JFAR Editor.

As part of my priority tasks when taking on the JFAR helm, I am planning to continue prior efforts to expand the Journal’s scope while simultaneously improving the quality and enhancing the quantity of submissions. I know this is a tall order and therefore, I am looking for the collective support of the AAA Forensic Accounting Section in achieving this desirable outcome.

I expect to be in St. Louis for the 2019 Forensic Accounting Section Research Conference from March 1-2 and will seek your advice in developing an effective strategic plan for advancing and sustaining JFAR.
