Professor Chris Brooks has been appointed Vice President of the British Accounting and Finance Association (BAFA) from 1 May 2017.

From the same date in 2018, he will then become the President of the organisation for a further two-year term. He will be the first finance academic to be President of BAFA, following his nomination and a vote by its membership. His roles in this capacity will involve organising its annual conference, which typically attracts more than 400 delegates, and furthering the strategic objectives of the society.

BAFA was established in 1947 as the British Accounting Association and is the learned society that represents the entire accounting and finance academic community across the whole of the UK. BAFA has several purposes, including acting as lobbyists for scholarly activity in this area, facilitating links with relevant practitioners, and promoting innovative and high quality teaching and research in the subject. BAFA also runs a leading journal, the British Accounting Review, and several special interest groups which organise their own workshops and other activities in more specialised sub-fields. The organisation has around 750 members, most of whom are employed in UK and international universities.

Professor Brooks said: “I feel honoured to have been appointed to this role and I am looking forward to the challenges it presents at a time of great change, both in higher education and in the professional services we work with.”
