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.
