Australian Accounting Hall of Fame
Accounting in Australia has a long and distinguished heritage. From the early years of European settlement to the present day, accountants and accounting have played important roles as the country pursued economic and social advancement. Throughout this long and distinguished history there have been many individuals whose achievements, both alone and in combination with others, have been significant and whose impact on the discipline has been profound. The Australian Accounting Hall of Fame seeks to identify and recognise these individuals and their contributions. Click to read more about the Australian Accounting Hall of Fame.
The Centre for Accounting and Industry Partnerships extends its warmest appreciation and thanks to the major sponsors of the Australian Accounting Hall of Fame Dinner and Awards Ceremony for their support and assistance.
