Submit your proposals by 11:59 pm Eastern March 10, 2021 for the American Accounting Association's Fourteenth Annual Conference on Teaching and Learning in Accounting (CTLA) to be held separately this year only from the AAA Annual Meeting. Because both CTLA and the Annual Meeting are virtual this year, CTLA will be hosted separately July 8-9 to provide attendees with additional time to incorporate what they learn during the conference.   Your proposals will be peer reviewed and you will be notified by April 19, 2021 if you are selected to be one of the presenters. The CTLA program committee reserves the right to assign acceptances to the CTLA final program based on where they fit best since the program is an amalgamation of accepted proposals.
