VSCPA members Bill Broadus, CPA, and Steve Holton, CPA, were honored by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) with the Sustained Contribution Award at the AICPA’s Fall Council meeting this week in Hawaii.
The award recognizes AICPA members who have significantly contributed to the AICPA and the profession through volunteer service. All 41 recipients have served on an AICPA volunteer group for at least 20 years and have served as the chair of an AICPA committee, task force or resource panel.
Broadus, a sole proprietor from Manassas, served as president of the VSCPA Board of Directors in 1992–1993, before the role’s title was changed to chair. He has served on the AICPA’s governing council, written numerous professional articles for the Journal of Accountancy and developed CPE courses for the AICPA. He has also been active with the Association of Government Accountants, where he is a past president, and the Ohio Society of CPAs.
Holton, a partner at Martin, Dolan and Holton in Glen Allen, is a former chair of the Virginia Board of Accountancy (VBOA) and the AICPA Auditing Standards Board. He has served on numerous task forces for the AICPA and the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB). When serving on the VBOA, he led the development of comprehensive revisions of Virginia’s accountancy statutes and VBOA statutes, changing both from rules-based to principles-based. He has served on the AICPA Board of Examiners, which sets policy for the CPA Exam.
“The AICPA congratulates all of the recipients of this year’s Sustained Contribution Award,” said Kathy Johnson, member of the AICPA’s award committee, in a statement. “The work they’ve done in volunteer leadership roles at the AICPA has strengthened the profession.”
