Dear Management Accounting Section (MAS) Members.

Welcome to the 2023/2024 year!

This year, we are excited to announce that we are looking for even more ways to connect with our members throughout the year. As part of this effort, we are pleased to invite you to join the MAS on LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/groups/12007279/)! Please use this platform to connect with the MAS community; to share teaching, research, and practice engagement resources; and to learn about our latest events.

The MAS started the new year with a great program put together by Todd Thornock and Curtis Hall (Co-Directors) at the 2023 AAA Annual Meeting in Denver, Colorado. Todd and Curtis organized 13 concurrent sessions and a panel session on “Teaching Management and Cost Accounting with Data Analytics”. We thank the authors who submitted 92 papers and the 130 volunteers who reviewed, discussed, and moderated for the Annual Meeting!
