MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Dear TLC Section Members
We kicked off the 2019 Annual Meeting in San Francisco, CA with the TLC breakfast on Monday morning, August 12, to celebrate the TLC award winners and share some best practices. The winners of the Outstanding Instructional Contribution in Accounting Award sponsored by the Deloitte Foundation are A. Faye Borthick and Gary P. Schneider. The winner of the Outstanding Research in Accounting Education Award sponsored by the EY Foundation is David Stout. Gail King was the recipient of the TLC Hall of Honor Award sponsored by the KPMG Foundation. Congratulations to all of the winners and a warm thank you to our award sponsors! We could not be more pleased that two of the three of the J. Michael Cook Prize winners are TLC members – congratulations to William E. McCarthy and Margarita Maria Lenk. More information about the awards are included in the newsletter on pages 9-11.
I am grateful to Cindy Bolt-Lee, who has completed her two-year term as Treasurer, and to Carol Yacht for her NINE years of service as our newsletter editor. We all appreciate your service and dedication to TLC! A big thank you to Cathy Scott, our new Treasurer and Claire Latham, who has taken over the newsletter, I look forward to working with you both in these new roles.
The fourth annual TLC Colloquium will occur in Tampa, FL on November 8 and 9, 2019. Cathy Scott, Gail King, Kimberly Church, Karen Osterheld, and Marcus Ahrens have arranged amazing sessions for both research and teaching tracks. A huge thank you to the KPMG Foundation for sponsorship of this event again this year. For more information, refer to pages 3-6.
