AAA GNP Section President
Greetings GNP Colleagues!
Thank you for this opportunity to serve as your GNP President. I look forward to working with you and moving the section forward for another year. I’m proud to be serving such an esteemed group of government and not-for-profit accounting scholars who also happen to be the friendliest section in the AAA. I’m also proud to say that the GNP section has always been my one and only section home.
The 2023 Midyear Meeting will be held in-person at the historic Oxford Hotel in downtown Denver Colorado on March 10th and 11th. Our meeting will be less than a block away from Union Station. It’s an outstanding location that really gives a true flavor of Denver and the West. Rebecca Bloch from Fairfield University has graciously accepted the Midyear Meeting Program Chair role for the 2023 meeting. Rebecca and I both hope that many of you are planning to attend the meeting next March. It’s our best opportunity to catch up with familiar GNP colleagues and meet new ones too.
