Celebrate Success by Nominating a Fellow CPA

One of the highlights of each year’s Annual Meeting is the presentation of awards.  This year, Annual Meeting will become Accounting Connections, and the awards program will receive its own honor, a completely separate evening program to recognize the highest accomplishments of certified public accountants in Alabama.

The ASCPA needs your help in nominating outstanding members for recognition in several categories.  Listed below are the criteria for each award.  Nominations will be forwarded to the respective selection committees for their review.  Recipients will be notified in advance so that they, and their families or colleagues, can be present at the Celebration of Success awards presentation on June 9, 2016.

As you submit the nomination form, be sure to include supporting materials for the particular award.  These can take the form of letters from individuals or organizations directly involved, media coverage or printed matter.

Outstanding Young CPA
Recognizes exceptional service to the Young CPA board, Young CPA chapters or individual Young CPA projects.  The Young CPA Board will make the selection of this recipient.

Outstanding Accounting Educator
Recognizes an Alabama college accounting instructor/professor for excellence in teaching and active involvement in the accounting profession.  This award includes a $1500 stipend.  The nominee need not be a CPA, nor hold a doctoral degree, and can include those who are presently involved in administration or research.  Past winners are not eligible. The Society’s Education Committee will review and make the selection of this recipient.
