Award Nominations

The ASCPA needs your help in nominating outstanding members for recognition in several categories for their accomplishments and contributions to the profession.

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 after the Annual Meeting.

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

The Society’s Education Committee will review and make the selection of this recipient.
