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 2023 conference is an opportunity to advance this mission and to showcase the skills and contributions of our diverse membership.

The 2023 AFAANZ conference will be held at The Star on the Gold Coast from Sunday July 2 to Tuesday July 4, with the SIG events beginning on Saturday July 1.  We will email all members when the conference registration portal opens, but invite you now to submit a paper to the conference below:
