Monday 5th July - Wednesday 7th July


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.

Our 2021 conference will again be a virtual conference, with free registration to AFAANZ members.

Our plenary speakers at the conference will be:

  •  Gary Monroe, Professor of Accounting, UNSW; and

  •  Phillip Stocken, Jack Byrne Professor of Accounting, Dartmouth College

For many of us it has been far too long since we have caught up face-to-face. Thus, we are proud to announce that in conjunction with our Platinum Sponsor CA ANZ, we are hosting networking hubs in each main centre (our Gold Sponsor CPA Australia in Hobart)  These hubs will feature a CA ANZ (CPA Australia) member speaking in a live session with Q&A on a continuation of the conference panel theme of Future Technology and the Profession. Drinks and finger food will be served all for the low cost of $AUD25.  We will announce all speakers in the lead-up to the events.

Australian hubs will be hosted in CA ANZ offices below from 4.00pm to 7.00pm local time on Wednesday 7 July 2021:

  • Sydney

  • Melbourne

  • Brisbane

  • Canberra

  • Perth

  • Adelaide

  • Hobart  (CPA Australia)

New Zealand hubs are as below at 4.00pm to 7.00pm local time on Tuesday 6 July 2021.

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 new Bronze sponsor, MYOB, for their 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.
