Message From APMAA Chairperson


Happy New Year! I want to wish everyone a happy and healthy New Year. 


The beginning of the new year is always a hopeful time. What will APMAA do in 2023? As an association of like-minded researchers and experts in accounting, APMAA wants you to continue to develop research events that help serve the accounting research and educational community. Last year, thanks to you, APMAA conducted webinars two times, last May and August (APMAA 2022 Webinars (August & May) ( We also completed the 2022 annual conference in a hybrid mode on November 11 (Friday) successfully (APMAA 2022 annual conference (Asia-Pacific Management Accounting Association) ( 


This year, from 24 (Tuesday) to 27(Friday) October 2023, we plan to have the 2023 Annual Conference at Xi'an Jiaotong University in China. The conference theme is "Challenges and Opportunities to Management Accounting in the Digital Era." Digitalization seems to have disrupted the accounting domain. Digital technologies like the "cloud" and robotic automation have changed accounting and auditing compliance practices and financial procedures. Today, many companies employ a company-wide performance management platform using software with Artificial Intelligence, Analytics, and Machine Learning technologies.


While Data Scientists tend to focus on the story that existing data can tell, accountants can use analytic methods to look into the future. However, academic research outputs examining the depth of digitalization in accounting and its impact on practices, education, and research are still insufficient. We must change and modify education programs to prepare accounting students for work in a digital environment. Let's discuss these vital issues at the 2023 webinars and the Forums of the 2023 Annual Conference.


APMAA is a "members-first" organization. You are the key players who develop APMAA events such as webinars and annual conferences (plenary sessions, forums, seminars) and shape the future of our association. Please send me your practical proposals for these events. I am glad to announce that several new (associate) directors have come to join the 2023 APMAA board. Our journey to the 20th anniversary conference has just begun. Toward the robust, sustainable, balanced, and inclusive growth of APMAA, let's walk the APMAA path hand in hand. Stay safe, stay healthy, and stay connected.
