This partnership provides the association's more than 900 members access to best practice HR resources and special purchase terms for Halogen's award winning Talent Management Suite for Professional Services.

Retaining top performers and developing new leadership is a top priority for accounting firms.

About The Association for Accounting Administration

The Association of Accounting Administrators was founded on January 1, 1984, to enable accounting firm administrators to communicate with one another and provide each other with the benefits of everyone's experiences in what was a new and emerging profession.

Through a combination of local meetings and seminars, and national conferences, publications and surveys, AAA, an individual membership society, offers maximum benefit to members at minimal cost.

AAA is the one representative voice of the profession. Many of our members put forth a great deal of effort toward educating the public accounting profession about the benefits of hiring professional administrators to run the business affairs of their respective firms. They have also largely shaped the profession, determined direction for administrator career pathing, and have been on the cutting edge of developments in our profession.
