The FICPA is pleased to announce the honorees of its 26 Under 36 initiative. The goal of the initiative was to identify and recognize FICPA members younger than 36 who have made notable accomplishments through their service to our organization, the CPA profession and their communities.

“We celebrate the honorees’ selection as the best and brightest young FICPA members,” said Deborah Curry, CGMA, FICPA President/CEO. “We applaud their accomplishments and thank them for their service to the Institute and to the CPA profession.”
