Message from Brian McAllister, University of Colorado Colorado Springs  AAA GNP Section President

Greetings GNP Colleagues,

I hope the end of your academic year is winding down nicely. I cannot believe that summer is almost here and that it will be time soon to attend the AAA Annual Meeting.

The GNP Section has a number of accomplishments to celebrate from the past year.

  • Congratulations to our own Linda Parsons for being elected to the AAA-wide position of Director-Focusing on Membership!
  • Congratulations also to Alan Styles for his appointment as a AAA Council Representative-Elect. Alan will be assuming this role in August 2023. Suzanne Lowensohn is currently serving on the AAA Council and has kept the Section well-informed on AAA business over the last three years. Thank you Suzanne and Alan for your service!!

GASB Gil Crain Grant

GASB Gil Crain Memorial Research Grant    

Since its formation in 1984, the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) has encouraged academics and other researchers to conduct studies that would be relevant to the GASB’s standards-setting activities. Over the past 30 years, such research efforts have resulted in publishing their research in research briefs, journal articles, and occasionally in GASB research reports.

The Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) seeks research proposals for the 2023 Gil Crain Grant Award. Proposals should address topics of interest to the GASB’s standard setting efforts. Proposals must be received by May 31, 2023 via email submission to Decisions on proposals will be made by the end of June 2023. Any questions about topics or the proposal process may be directed to Tammy Waymire, GASB Senior Research Manager, via email or phone (203) 956-5376.
