Peer-nominated CPAs in all 50 states to be recognized for demonstrating top professional standards in accounting

Surgent, the leading continuing professional education (CPE) provider for CPAs and other accounting, financial, and tax professionals, today announced the official launch of the 2017 All-State CPA Awards, a new program designed to recognize the most knowledgeable practicing Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) in each state, judged by peer recognition.

The annual program will recognize one CPA in each of the 50 states who peers believe best demonstrates top professional standards in the areas of knowledge, innovation and problem solving, trust and integrity, and reputation in the client and peer community.

Nominations are only accepted for licensed, currently practicing CPAs, and only licensed, currently practicing CPAs may submit a nomination.

Having seen the difference that high-quality continuing education can make for CPAs, both in advancing their careers and serving clients, Surgent created this award as a way to recognize those accounting and tax professionals who go above and beyond to keep their knowledge and skills as fresh as possible.

The program reinforces Surgent’s mission to go beyond just providing the continuing education credits that CPAs and other professionals must earn to maintain their professional credentials; instead Surgent aims to serve as the most reliable and trustworthy source of the practical and strategic information CPAs need to excel professionally, and aims to recognize CPAs demonstrating this in practice.

“The All-State CPA Awards enable CPAs to recognize the peer in their firm or network who always seems to have the answers to the toughest tax and accounting questions, and who is willing to share that knowledge for the betterment of the greater client community,” said Evan Kramer, CEO of Surgent. “This transfer of knowledge strengthens the reputation of the accounting profession as a whole, and aligns with Surgent’s mission to preserve the integrity of CPE as education beyond compliance.”

All nominations for the program will be reviewed by a judging committee comprised of Surgent staff and advisors, and one CPA from each of the 50 states will be selected each year.

Winners will receive recognition as the All-State CPA for their respective state via Surgent's website, press coverage, and select advertising. Winners will also receive a printed and digital certificate, as well as an unlimited CPE webinar package from Surgent at no charge.

Nominations are being accepted now through June 30, 2017.
