About Us

The African Accounting and Finance Association (AAFA) aims to provide a platform for academics and practitioners to debate the role of accounting and finance in Africa.  It is our sincere hope that the activities of AAFA will advance knowledge and understanding of education, research and practice in all areas of accounting and finance in Africa.


As a member of AAFA you will be eligible to attend our conferences, seminars, research workshops/training, and emerging scholar colloquium. You will also have access to members only area of the AAFA website which contains a link to a number of vital resources and information sources. In addition you will be regularly receiving the AAFA Newsletter that provides current information in the field of Accounting and Finance in Africa.

The annual membership subscription rates are US$20 for academics and US$10 for students. You will automatically become a member of AAFA when you attend our annual conference.
