The CPABC Member Recognition Program

Exceptional volunteerism and career achievement—both in the community and within the profession—is something all three legacy bodies recognized and celebrated.

Building on these traditions, we are proud to launch the CPABC Member Recognition Program, which will recognize excellence and achievement by objectively assessing career success, volunteerism in the community, and contributions to the profession.

CPABC award winners will exemplify the best attributes of chartered professional accountants: leadership, expertise, innovative thinking, integrity, and commitment to the highest standards and best practices.

The Early Achievement Award celebrates members who’ve joined the profession within the last 10 years and have already distinguished themselves in their careers through professional achievement and volunteer service, with an emphasis on professional achievement.

The Community Service Award highlights the remarkable commitment and dedication of members to a social cause or their recent/present support of one or more not-for-profit or charitable organizations.

The Service to the Profession Award recognizes members’ dedication, commitment, and outstanding contributions to the CPA profession. From these award winners, the member recognition committee will choose one CPA to receive the Exceptional Service to the Profession Award, which was created in honour of several legacy volunteers who gave tremendously to the accounting profession, and in recognition of the values they exhibited: Bill Caulfield, CPA (Hon.), Harold Clarke, FCPA, FCGA, J.M. MacBeth, FCPA, FCGA, and Ritchie McCloy, FCPA, FCA.

Fellowship in the profession recognizes members who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and exceptional performance in volunteer services to the profession, their careers, and volunteer contributions to professional, community, or charitable organizations.

Finally, the highest accolade CPABC will bestow is the Lifetime Achievement Award, which recognizes FCPAs who, after receiving their fellowship, have continued to exemplify extraordinary leadership and accomplishments in a broad range of areas.

More information on each award is available at, along with nomination forms. The deadline for submitting nominations is October 15, 2015.
