Association Publication Names AICPA President and CEO Executive of the Year


Barry Melancon, AICPA president and CEO, was named Association Executive of the Year by Association TRENDS, a news publication for association leaders.

 

The publication has presented the title annually at its Salute to Association Excellence event, held last month in Washington, D.C., to the top association executive since 1982. Melancon was recognized for leading the AICPA in reinventing its culture and responding to changes confronting the profession—from overseeing the move of one of the Institute’s major offices from New Jersey to North Carolina in 2006 to communicating with members around the world on a daily basis.

 

“I am honored to be selected by Association TRENDS as the Association Executive of the Year,” said Melancon in a prepared statement. “In my mind this is an AICPA award, reflecting on our work as an organization, which only happens because of our member volunteers, our tremendous staff and executive team, and our partnerships, including those with the state CPA societies.”
