Governance & Partnership

Governed by a Director and supported by pioneering faculty, the Professional Accounting Centre will also garner input and expertise with the assistance of two boards: the PAC Advisory Board and the PAC Research Adjudication Board.  The Advisory Board will provide input on the overall direction and operation of the Centre, while the Research Adjudication Board will review and advise on research programs and the allocation of research funding.  

The composition of each board will reflect emerging concerns and competence in professional accounting while including accounting professionals and regulators from varied practice areas. 

Where there is a desire to develop programs of common interest, PAC will extend its reach through partnership opportunities with professional accounting bodies, firms, university research centres, and individuals over the course of its operations and its evolution as a research centre.
