Nominations Time for Public Service Award


As part of its ongoing efforts to honor CPAs who have distinguished themselves in the area of community service, the AICPA established the Individual and Firm Public Service Awards. AICPA members, state societies and associations of CPA firms can submit the names of those they think should be honored. Almost any public-service-related activity counts, except for professional services related to accounting organizations. Consideration will be given to the size of the firm in relation to its contribution to the community it serves. Award recipients often have been involved in less traditional areas such as urban development, housing, education, youth programs, cultural activities and health care and disabilities.

Submissions are due by August 31, 2006. For more information about the Public Service Awards, contact Jay Rothberg (212-596-6005; jrothberg@aicpa.org ) or download the guidelines and nominations form at www.aicpa.org/members/nominationforms.htm .
