FYI


The AICPA requests nominations for two awards recognizing the pro bono achievements of individual CPAs and firms. Beginning this year a Public Service Award for Firms joins its preexisting counterpart, the Public Service Award, which acknowledges individual contributions. Institute members, state societies and CPA firm associations can nominate candidates for either award by downloading forms at www.aicpa.org/members/ and submitting them to the postal or e-mail addresses indicated therein. Submissions are due August 31.
