Center for Advancement of Accounting

In March 2004, the Center for the Advancement of Accounting (CAA) was created with the assistance of the Friends of Accounting (FAD) to increase awareness and promote private support of the School of Accounting. The overall mission of the Center is consistent with the School of Accounting's education mission, which includes:
  • assisting in providing technology upgrades for faculty and student use.
  • engaging in education program development.
  • sponsoring events and programs featuring professional and academic speakers.
  • providing reference materials for departmental and student use.

In addition to the items listed above, gifts to the Center support faculty research and academic travel.

The current board for the Center for the Advancement of Accounting (CAA) includes:

Mark Cecchini, Interim Director, Center for the Advancement of Accounting
Andrew Newman, Assistant Professor, School of Accounting
David Johnson, Lecturer, School of Accounting
Bob Szymanski, Lecturer, School of Accounting
Aaron Lawrence, Controller, Zeus Metals
Robert Parsons, CFO, Mashburn Construction Company
Graham Houghten, II, President, Specialty Woodworks, Inc.
