VSCPA Distinguished CPA Awards


Each year, VSCPA members nominate individuals in two award categories recognizing professional and personal accomplishments. The VSCPA proudly recognizes the award winners annually at the Virginia CPA Honors & Awards ceremony during the Society's Leaders’ Summit in May. Award nominations open Oct. 1, so check back soon! 

  • The Outstanding Member of the Year award recognizes a VSCPA member who has provided outstanding service to the profession through participation in VSCPA activities, civic engagement and charitable activities that further a positive image of the profession. 
  • The Top 5 Under 35 award recognizes young VSCPA members who have shown excellence in one or more of the following: professional achievement, VSCPA chapter accomplishment, community contribution or dedication to the CPA profession.
