Message by The Accounting, Financial & Economic Program Chair
From storms to exams, the end of this semester has been very hectic. Please accept my apologies for not sending this letter sooner. I hope everyone had a safe trip home from the Accounting, Financial & Economic Conference.
First, thank you for participating in the Accounting, Financial & Economic Conference. You, our keynote speaker, the open forum on "Theory vs. Practice", the conference center staff, the conference venue staff, all contributed to the success! Of course we could not have a good conference without the golf, the tennis, and of course, the weather!
I hope you are making plans to attend the next Accounting, Financial & Economic Research Conference. Please share this opportunity with colleagues you know around the country that would benefit from this conference. Also, encourage business people in your area to attend, cooperatively seeking improvements of theory and practice.
As you develop your academic year, make plans for your students to participate in the next Accounting, Financial & Economic Research Conference, instilling that sense of inquiry. If you had a chance to attend any of the student sessions, you can see that the next generation of scholars is in good hands. The Accounting, Financial & Economic Research Conference students added their name to the long legion of AFER Scholars.
The accounts for this Accounting, Financial & Social Economic Conference will soon close. Thank you for your patience during the last couple of weeks. If you need a receipt or a form, please contact me if your school requires any other additional information to qualify their records.
Finally, I want to thank Adela Schroder, for her service as President of the Accounting, Financial & Social Research Conference. John McMullen will serve as President next year. Thank you to our sponsor journals for publishing the conference papers, to our partners for their support as well as to the Australia Government.
Trust me, if you enjoyed your week of work at the Accounting, Financial & Economic Research Conference, you will really like a week of doing absolutely nothing the next summer at Canberra! I encourage you to return with your family and enjoy this wonderful resort!
Once again, thank you for participating in the Accounting, Financial & Economic Research Conference. I look forward to seeing at the forcoming Conference!

Chairman, Accounting, Financial & Economic Research Conference
