This years theme is “Accounting has changed, where do we fit?”. Included in the program are two panel sessions debating the changed nature of accounting as a profession. One panel with industry professionals, and one with academics. We also have a variety of presenters who will share their research and insights on the theme, all with differing perspectives. The forum will be forward focused, thought provoking and useful for all AFAANZ members. More details will be available closer to the date.  We hope that you can join us in person at this exciting event.
