When and what is Accounting Day®?

The first Accounting Day® in San Diego was believed to be held in 1972. This would have been organized by the San Diego Chapter of the California Society of CPA’s to interest young people in pursuing an accounting career. These early events were called “Accounting Career Days.” In 1976, other professional accounting and finance organizations were invited to participate and the event became known as “Accounting Day®”.

The date of the main Accounting Day® Live in San Diego is held on a Monday in May, so the date changes. This date has been used by some as the national or international Accounting Day date.

National and International Accounting Day Dates

International Accounting Day is most commonly recognized on November 10th each year.

In the US, there is no official “National Accounting Day”, but many recognize “National Accounting Day” in May. Most of these are based on the different dates of past Accounting Day® Live events in San Diego. The most common of these is May 16th, which was started by our 2007 Accounting Day® Live event.

If you would like to recognize your Accountant for all the time and money they save you then we suggest you celebrate them on May 16th and November 10th.
