Higher Education Accounting Forum Call for Presentations

Do you have a story to tell, a success to share, research to convey? NACUBO invites you to submit a proposal to present a session at the 2014 Higher Education Accounting Forum being held April 27-29, 2014, in Minneapolis, MN.

We are seeking proposals for sessions that highlight an issue or topic of concern that an audience of accounting managers, controllers, internal auditors, budget directors, CFOs, and others would find beneficial. Submissions may come from campus administrators or members of the corporate community. Corporate submissions should include a campus business officer as a co-presenter.

We are seeking presentations on (but not limited to) the following topics:

  • Internal controls/process improvements
  • Shared services
  • Cost containment ideas
  • Organizational response to health care reform
  • Internal reporting and analysis
  • Financial accounting and reporting
  • Campus tax issues
  • International business issues - doing business in other countries

In selecting presentations for the Higher Education Accounting Forum, the program committee will be evaluating sessions best suited to the needs of accounting and financial management professionals at colleges and universities. Some key considerations as you prepare your proposal:

  • Include as much detail as possible about the presentation. 
  • Include 2-3 learning objectives or audience takeaways 
  • Gear the presentation towards an audience at the intermediate to advanced level of understanding, rather than basic treatments or overviews
