Through the Young Leader Awards, the PICPA annually recognizes its members under the age of 40 who demonstrate a commitment to the accounting profession through active PICPA or community volunteer activities. Keep an eye on this group. They are the future of the accounting profession and the PICPA.
In addition to climbing the ranks quickly at their organizations, past winners have gone on to serve as PICPA leadership, committee chairs, and respected speakers at conferences.
Those who were nominated, and eventually chosen, for this year's award were born on or after Jan. 1, 1982.
