The National Auditing Conference (NAC)

1999 University of Essex
2009 University of Exeter
The above links will take you to a summary of the programme for each conference and papers presented.
The conferences have provided valuable opportunities for lecturers from higher education institutions to meet and discuss current auditing and related educational issues. The Organising Committee seek to achieve a mix of professional and academic speakers, and keynote speakers are asked to address special themes. In the past themes have included The Public Sector, International auditing, Corporate Governance/Internal Auditing, the Audit Society, the Audit Quality Forum, the Audit Clarity Project of IAASB. The panel session of the 2010 conference in Aston is about the future of auditing after the major financial crisis at the end of the first decade of the 21st century, and five leading edge academics, regulators, and practitioners are invited to present their views on the future of the profession in the context of change and its implications for auditing research.
The National Auditing Conference is currently sponsored by the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants, The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland.
The National Auditing Conference was from its inception in 1991, and up until 1996, independent of BAA. When the Auditing Special Interest Group was established, however, the decision was taken to make NAC the official conference of the group. It was also decided that the conference should be open to all interested parties and not just to those who are members of BAA. However, those participating in the conference are encouraged to become members of BAA.
