Business Valuation Volunteers Honored by AICPA
The AICPA recently honored 10 volunteers serving the profession in the business valuation arena for outstanding service, with specific commendations given for work in developing the Accreditation in Business Valuation (ABV). The awards were handed out at the AICPA's Business Valuation Conference in Las Vegas earlier this week.
Hall of Fame Awards were given to Carl M. Alongi, Edward J. Dupke, Larry R. Cook, Terry H. Korn and Gary R. Trugman.
Volunteer of the Year recipients included Nancy J. Fannon, Arthur F. Brueggeman, James R. Hitchner, R. Christopher Rosenthal and Michael J. Mard.
Six of the honorees, Alongi, Dupke, Cook, Brueggeman, Hitchner and Mard, belong to the Financial Consulting Group, an organization of 45 CPA firms working together on business valuation and litigation projects.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
