Research Feedback Session for Auditing Researchers

Monday, November 4, 2019

Do you have a research question that you think would benefit from feedback from a senior audit practitioner? Then take advantage of the 2020 In-person Research Feedback Session. A unique opportunity developed and led by the Center for Audit Quality’s (CAQ’s) Research Advisory Board (RAB), being held at the 2020 AAA Auditing Section MYM in Houston, TX.

These sessions have been designed to offer researchers, like you, the chance to receive feedback from senior practice leaders and non-practice members of the CAQ’s RAB in order to gain new perspectives that may help in refining and further developing your research question. All research methodologies are welcome.

The CAQ will be scheduling multiple sessions of 15 minutes each, during which academic scholars will present their research idea to members of the CAQ’s Research Advisory Board (RAB):

Date:  Thursday, January 16, 2020
Time:  2:30 pm – 6:00 pm CST
Place:  Hyatt Regency Houston (the MYM hotel)
* If applying for this session you may want to make a protective hotel stay now in order to get the AAA MYM rate.

These sessions are available to all academics that conduct auditing research – from PhD students to full professors. The RAB supports studies employing a wide range of research methodologies, including archival studies, meta analyses, modeling, literature reviews, behavioral/experimental research studies, and descriptive analyses.

The CAQ will be accepting applications via email Now – Monday, December 16th, 2019.

Submissions must be received no later than Midnight PST, Monday, December 16 ,2019.

How the session works: 

  • RAB members who are participating in this event will review the Kinney Three Paragraphs to familiarize themselves with your research idea.
  • At the appointed time, you will make a brief 5-minute pitch about your research idea (similar to what entrepreneurs do on Shark Tank).
  • Once you’ve made your pitch, you will have 10-minutes to hear from the RAB members, who may provide feedback and ask questions.
    • You will also be able to ask questions of the RAB members.
  • Co-authors are welcome to participate in the Q&A with the RAB members, but only one team member can make the pitch presentation.

How to apply:

  • To apply for this opportunity, send your project’s Kinney Three Paragraphs (up to two pages) to research@thecaq.org. You may also include up to three questions you would like the practitioners to be prepared to answer.
    • Submissions that do not include a Kinney Three Paragraphs write up will not be considered.
  • Space is limited, and we expect demand to be high, so researchers will be chosen via a lottery.
  • Those selected will receive a confirmation email by Wednesday, December 18, 2019.
