Asia-Pacific Management Accounting Association
The mission of Asia-Pacific Management Accounting Association is to provide platforms to foster communication about academic and practice oriented research amongst researcher and practitioners from academe and industry to advance knowledge pertaining to management and accounting studies.
The vision of Asia-Pacific Management Accounting Association is to be an active participant in the academic and practitioner community about creation of knowledge through research in universities and industries nationally and internationally by becoming the premier international organization that represents professional research interests and advances knowledge of management and accounting studies educators, researchers and practitioners.
The proposal to form the Asian Management Accounting Association was first mooted at the convention of Asian Management Forum, the first forum, which was held on 3rd and 4th November 2002 in Fukuoka, Japan under the inspiration of Professor Dr. Akira Nishimura. Since then, the founder members from countries of the Asia-Pacific region continue to meet annually to share the same vision of advancing management and accounting research and practices with particular reference to the Asia-Pacific region.
As a result, when the second convention, Asia-Pacific Management Accounting Forum was held on 24-25, November 2004 in Malaysia, it was unanimously decided that the time had arrived to officially establish the Asia-Pacific Management Accounting Association with two primary objectives.
1. The objective of APMAA is to promote the advancement of management accounting theory and practices with particular reference to Asia-Pacific accounting issues.
2. For this purpose, APMAA shall undertake to organize forums and conferences, and the publication of the journal: Asia-Pacific Journal of Management Accounting (APMAJ).
