FEI’s blog would like to give a shout-out to all our colleagues participating in the American Accounting Association (AAA) annual meeting this week in Anaheim, CA. AAA is the professional association for accounting professors. We understand AAA may have a record number of participants in the annual meeting this year; no surprise with the heightened interest in accounting among students, professors, and others. With the accounting profession facing a shortage of PhDs to meet rising enrollments, and the rapid pace of change, programs at AAA’s annual meeting are geared toward meeting these and other challenges, including the move to International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). (Note: later today, we will be posting highlights from SEC's IFRS-GAAP roundtable held Aug. 4.) Read more about AAA's annual meeting,and FEI's outreach to academics here.
