Sustained Contribution Award recognizes volunteerism


James L. Brown received the Institute’s Sustained Contribution Award, which recognizes members who have contributed measurably to the AICPA and accounting profession with a long and exemplary record of volunteer service.

Brown, a partner at Crowe Horwath before his retirement in 2009, served on four AICPA senior technical committees, including the Auditing Standards Board, the Accounting Standards Executive Committee, the CPA Examination Board of Examiners, and the SEC Practice Section/Center for Public Company Audit Firms Executive Committee. He has also served on or chaired more than 20 AICPA task forces and subcommittees.

Brown has also served on FASB groups and chaired the Horwath International Accounting and Auditing Committee.
