2022 Auditing Section Doctoral Consortium
Thursday, January 13, 2022
Sahara Las Vegas, Las Vegas, Nevada
Thank you to KPMG Foundation for generously supporting the
Auditing Section Midyear Meeting and Doctoral Consortium!
The Auditing Section of the American Accounting Association, through the generous support of KPMG, is sponsoring the Annual Auditing Section Doctoral Consortium. The Consortium is Thursday afternoon, January 13, 2022. The Consortium will be held at the Sahara Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada in conjunction with the Auditing Section's Midyear Conference (to be held January 14-15, 2022). The purpose of the Consortium is to stimulate students' research by exposing them to the latest ideas from leading researchers in auditing, and by providing opportunities for networking with other Ph.D. students interested in auditing, established auditing researchers, and journal editors.
Doctoral Student Eligibility
All Ph.D. students who have an interest in auditing research are eligible to apply.
Doctoral Student Registration Information
There is no cost to apply and no registration fee for Consortium. Any student wishing to attend must complete the application process. The deadline for Consortium applications is September 30, 2021.
The organizers will issue invitations to attend by October 28, 2021 and alternates will also be notified in case any invited students decide not to attend. To apply for an invitation to the Consortium, complete the online application. You can access the application here.
Please note that the application for the Consortium is separate from registration for the Auditing Section Midyear Conference which follows the Consortium.
Hotel Accommodations and Information
The Consortium runs from 12:00 pm- 5:00 pm and is followed by a reception. Students who attend the Consortium are eligible for the conference rate at the Sahara Las Vegas on Wednesday and Thursday nights (January 12-13, 2022).
Students should make their reservations directly with the hotel. The deadline for hotel reservations is December 17th but we cannot guarantee that any additional rooms will be available in the hotel once our block of rooms is sold out, even if the block is sold out before the deadline, so we advise making your hotel reservations early. If a student is unable to attend the meeting, the hotel reservations must be cancelled in advance to avoid a penalty.
Consortium Cancellation Policy
Students must cancel their Consortium registration if unable to attend. This will allow another student who is wait-listed to attend the Consortium. To cancel a registration, please notify, via email, the AAA (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Rick Hatfield, email@example.com as early as possible.
Americans with Disabilities Act
The American Accounting Association intends to comply fully with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Any members planning to attend this consortium and or the Midyear Conference who have special needs, as covered by the ADA, are requested to notify Kelli Rickrode at the American Accounting Association, (firstname.lastname@example.org) or 941-556-4123, to facilitate identification and accommodation of these needs by the Association.
