The AFAANZ mission is to promote and maintain excellence in the fields of pedagogy, practice, and policy in accounting, finance, and other related subjects through the development of teaching and research in Australia and New Zealand. The 2021 conference is an opportunity to advance this mission and to showcase the skills and contributions of our diverse membership.
Once again, we received a large number of research papers from across the world and across a broad range of topics. These include auditing, accounting education, accounting history, corporate governance, corporate social responsibility, finance, financial accounting, interdisciplinary accounting, international accounting, management accounting, public-sector/ not-for-profit accounting, technology and tax. The broad scope of research streams continues to reflect our desire to ensure that AFAANZ reaches out to all accounting and finance academics in our region.
We thank all of you who have submitted papers and who have indicated your willingness to chair sessions and discuss papers. The conference continues to provide a variety of outstanding speakers and topics including keynote addresses from Professor Gary Monroe, UNSW; and Professor Phillip Stocken, Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth.
Our Special Interest Groups (SIGs) will also be holding their seminars at the conference. The SIGs provide valuable professional development and excellent networking opportunities with leading members of the profession.
We would like to take this opportunity once again to thank our Platinum sponsor, the Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand; our Gold sponsor, CPA Australia; and our Bronze sponsor, MYOB, for their continued sponsorship of AFAANZ.
The conference is the culmination of the work of some very committed and selfless individuals who strive to ensure that the experience is one that you will enjoy and find inspirational. The AFAANZ Board thanks all who have worked so hard to put this very special conference together.
