Many of you may be aware that the 2015 Practice Excellence Awards are drawing very near. For this year, we will have a brand new category: Outstanding contribution to accounting. We're looking for nominees from you, our community. The individual will have made long and significant contribution to the profession and will reflect values of practice excellence to which you all aspire. The person can be in practice or retired, a thought leader or a practice excellence guru -- and not specifically a member of AccountingWEB either.
We've thought of a few names here at the Aweb offices, people like Steve Pipe, John Whiting, Paul Dunn, David Maister and Richard Mannion. This is the quality we're looking for. They are only suggestions though, and we'd love to hear your thoughts.
This open to everyone's suggestions and you're opinions will have a real effect on the outcome. If we receive enough suggestions, we will put together a shortlist and again open it up to the community. We will also consult the esteemed Practice Excellence judge panel.
And of course keep your eyes peeled on the progress. It's not too late to grab a ticket to the conference to see the award handed in person! We look forward to your responses.
