Members with a passion for lifelong learning can serve as testers of our new educational products or online self-study courses and provide feedback on the course experience.

Research Panel

An important part of our mission is promoting leading-edge research and industry best practices. Members can share their thoughts and views on a variety of topics by participating in short surveys (10 to 15 minutes each) and can opt in or out at any time. Survey responses help us and our research grant recipients develop cutting-edge research relevant to the management accounting profession.
