Young Leader Awards

PICPA Members to Watch

The PICPA annually recognizes its members under the age of 40 who demonstrate a extraordinary commitment to the accounting profession through PICPA or community service.

In addition to climbing the ranks quickly at their organizations, past winners have gone on to serve as chapter presidents, committee chairs, and speakers at conferences. Nominees for the 2017 Young Leader Awards must be born on or after Jan. 1, 1977.
