The Pacioli Society was established in 1968 on the initiative of Emeritus Professor R.J. Chambers, the foundation Professor of Accounting at the University of Sydney. The aim was to provide a forum on matters related to accounting, business and finance, and to foster the expression of both academic and professional views on topical issues based on informed opinion and debate.
The Pacioli Society now operates under the auspices of the Accounting Foundation and provides a valuable contact between academics from Sydney and other metropolitan universities and the business community.
Up to four meetings are held each year. In line with the aims of the Society, each meeting is presented by a panel of speakers to ensure several perspectives of the topic are put forward. Attendees are always given opportunities to ask questions and to voice their own opinions about the topic.
A subscription to the journal Abacus is included in the cost of the annual Pacioli Society membership fee.
