    Section News – Forensic Section’s First Business Meeting

    The Forensic and Investigative Accounting Section is holding its first Business Meeting and a Breakfast during the 2009 Annual Meeting, both on Wednesday morning. Be on the lookout for news from this new community of accounting colleagues!

    “What the use of finger prints was to the 19th century and DNA analysis was to the 20th, forensic accounting will be to the 21st century.”
    - Gordon Brown, Chancellor of the Exchequer, 10 October 2006.

    Academic Access to the FASB Codification

    Through a joint project of the AAA/FASB/FAF, accounting programs can enroll for access to the Academic View (the same as the Professional View) of the FASB Codification for all their faculty members and students.  During the Annual Meeting attendees will see information provided via a banner in the Exhibit Hall, flyers in your registration materials, information at the AAA booth, a page in the Annual Meeting program, and a new AAACommons community on the subject. After the meeting we'll be in touch with Chairs of programs worldwide to let them know about this great new option. At the affordable price of $150 annually, we hope many programs will take advantage of this new opportunity for their students and faculty.
