Background of the Association


The Asia-Pacific Management Accounting Association (APMAA),
established in 2004, is the leading association of scholars and specialists in the field of management and accounting.

The proposal to form the Asian Management Accounting Association was first mooted at the convention of Asian Management Forum, the first forum, which was held on 3rd and 4th November 2002 in Fukuoka, Japan under the inspiration of Professor Dr. Akira Nishimura. Since then, the founder members from countries of the Asia-Pacific region continue to meet annually to share the same vision of advancing management and accounting research and practices with particular reference to the Asia-Pacific region.

As a result, when the second convention, Asia-Pacific Management Accounting Forum was held on 24-25, November 2004 in Malaysia, it was unanimously decided that the time had arrived to officially establish the Asia-Pacific Management Accounting Association with two primary objectives.

1. The objective of APMAA is to promote the advancement of management accounting theory and practices with particular reference to Asia-Pacific accounting issues.

2. For this purpose, APMAA shall undertake to organize forums and conferences, and the publication of the journal: Asia-Pacific Journal of Management Accounting (APMAJ).

Professor Dr. Akira Nishimura remained the President of APMAA since its inception until 2009. On 1 January 2010, the baton was passed to Professor Dr Susumu Ueno (2010-2013).  On January 1, 2014, APMAA renewed its governance structure, and .Professor Dr Susumu Ueno (2014-) continues to lead the association  by serving as the chair of the board of directors.

APMAA is striving for establishing national chapters around the region to facilitate networking as well as the facilitation and exchange of knowledge at a more local level.
