1. AICPA

The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) holds several events for members each year. One of the crowd favorites is the annual conference, AICPA Engage. This event is a national gathering where accounting professionals from every subfield can come together to overcome the challenges facing the field. AICPA Engage was created from the idea that collaboration is key to professional growth. The 2019 event will take place from June 9th to 13th in Las Vegas, Nevada, but will also be available for online attendance. The conference will focus on everything needed to improve personal and company success.

2. Journal of Accounting Research Conference

Another key component to continued knowledge and skills in accounting is to remain up to date on the field research. The Journal of Accounting 54th Annual Research Conference is an excellent forum to accomplish this goal. Not only will the event focus on the presentation of cutting-edge research, but there will also be opportunities for workshops and networking. This 2019 event will take place May 10th and 11th in Chicago, Illinois. Those interested in submitting papers may do so until December 3rd, 2018.

3. International Conference on Finance and Accounting

Maintaining the most comprehensive set of knowledge and skills also requires maintaining a global perspective. It is therefore important to attend some international events, such as the 21st Annual International Conference on Finance and Accounting. The goal of this event is to unite accounting professionals with diverse experience and ideas in order to improve the field worldwide and promote international cooperation. The 2019 event will take place February 21st and 22nd in Paris, France. There will be ample opportunity to both hear research presentations and network with colleagues. Those who wish to submit presentations and papers have until October 26th, 2019.

4. National Tax and Customs Administration

The National Tax and Customs Administration Finance and Accounting Conference is a great opportunity to focus on the growing role of technology within the field. Staying current on technology is crucial for maintaining a successful modern practice. The 2019 event will take place from August 4th to 6th in Baltimore, Maryland. The conference will be broken into sections focusing on Strategy, Operations, and Technology. Attendees will enjoy both large presentations and interactive breakout sessions.

5. American Accounting Association

The American Accounting Association (AAA) Annual Meeting is full of opportunities to both teach and learn. Its central goal is continuing education through applying research to create new and better practices. AAA seeks to accomplish this through collaboration and hands-on learning opportunities. The 2019 event will take place from August 4th to 8th in Washington, D.C. This year’s event focus is Pathways to a Sustainable Future.

Staying current in the field of accounting is not only necessary, but it is also fun. Accounting conferences such as these five aim to bring accounting professionals together to learn, grow, and network. These events offer something for every professional, both across the United States and abroad.
