All nomination files must be received by 4:00 p.m., Friday, September 15, 2017.
Every year, CPABC calls for nominations for the following member recognition awards.
Nominators are responsible for ensuring that the file is complete and that the information it contains is accurate and sufficient to allow the committees to fairly evaluate the nomination. The committees also reserve the right to have the main facts in support of a nomination validated by an outside source.

The Board of Directors has formed two member recognition committees to administer the program, which are chaired by the past chair of the CPABC board. After carefully reviewing and evaluating the nominations received, these committees will make recommendations to the board. One committee will consider fellowships, lifetime achievement awards, and honorary CPAs. The second committee will review the nominations for early achievement and distinguished service.
Once the CPABC board has approved the awards, the award winners will be contacted directly. For unsuccessful nominations, the nominator will be contacted, as the nominee may not be aware that they have been nominated.
Note: To be eligible for a CPABC member recognition award, a candidate cannot have already received a similar award from one of the legacy bodies.
Award winners will be profiled in the CPABC In Focus magazine and on the CPABC website (subject to their providing permission) and will be recognized at a Member Recognition event.
