Thirty-two young CPAs have received the first annual Standing Ovation recognition in the areas of forensic accounting and business valuation.
The Standing Ovation program, which launched last year, recognizes the best CPAs under age 40 in various specialty credential areas. In the FVS specialty area, nominees must have maintained an active CPA license, been an AICPA member in good standing, and held the Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF) and/or the Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV) credential.
