We are Progenitors: Academics, AI, and the Future

We are excited to host the DIV and TLC Joint Meeting of the American Accounting Association Meeting in St. Louis, MO, October 24-26, 2024. We have a great program in a terrific location, with easy access to a variety of great experiences to help foster a positive meeting experience.

Our sections’ collaborative efforts are centered on delivering a value-added experience where we contribute, harvest, learn, and are empowered by the research, exciting ideas, and innovations of persons in the academic community. The DIV and TLC sections are resolute in maintaining the value we offer through a shared vision for the sustained support of accounting education, research, and practice based on inclusive participation and collaborative efforts. We are committed to equipping and engaging all stakeholders through emerging research, innovative curricula, best practices in instructional methodology, intentional pedagogy, and heightened awareness of the scholarship of learning.

We agree on the value and incremental benefits that a joint meeting will deliver to members of both sections. This October, in St. Louis, we focus on the future; we consider the ways in which our academic community, its stakeholders and many others will look towards our community to be progenitors of innovations that promote the integration of technology, artificial intelligence, impactful research, and effective instruction. We also recognize the opportunity to augment the achievement of goals such as faculty retention, faculty development, and faculty leadership.

The possibilities are limitless for what can happen when we bring the diversity of perspective and people together. Plan to attend this year’s Joint Meeting. We invite faculty to join a section if not a member, and to submit research papers, pedagogical works, panel, and workshop ideas for consideration by the June deadline. Take the time to immerse yourself in several of the best opportunities to socialize with members, meet editors, and identify collaborative possibilities for future projects.

We hope that you plan today on joining us; together, we can accomplish much. Thank you in advance for your continued contributions and scholarship. See you in the Fall!
