The theme for the 2014 Annual Meeting is "Global Engagement & Perspectives." Globalization is today's reality and a key feature of our future. Globalization affects all of accounting academe, regardless of where you live, work, and learn; and regardless of what you teach or the type of scholarship you do. Continuing to become more global means embracing varied perspectives, and having global impact and reach for our teaching, research, and service to the profession. The plenary and follow-up sessions at the 2014 Annual Meeting will focus on making all of us more global so that we can be thought leaders in accounting. They will provide the backdrop for discussions throughout the meeting. The meeting will also emphasize engagement with our senior researchers and partners in practice, and continue to include the Conference on Teaching and Learning in Accounting (CTLA). Please join us in Atlanta and participate in the conversation!
