2005 Business & Industry Hall of Fame Calls for Nominations
Ajilon Financial and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants launched the search for nominees to the Business & Industry Hall of Fame on Monday. Winners will be announced at the AICPA’s Fall Business & Industry Financial Executive Forum.

Candidates understand the business beyond the numbers, effectively managing expectations within their organizations to meet today’s dynamic market conditions.
“We’re extremely excited to be partnering with Ajilon Finance to help promote this prestigious award,” CPA and AICPA vice president John F. Morrow said in a written statement. “We’re encouraging individuals to nominate their bosses and colleagues that have proven to be skilled practitioners and that embody the core characteristics of today’s CPA.”

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.
