The New Jersey Society of CPAs announced the recipients of its 2021 Ovation Awards to honor those who have made “significant contributions in advancing the accounting profession.”
Forty-one NJCPA members were chosen in all, with categories including a Lifetime Leader Award; Diversity, Equity & Inclusion; Exceptional Educators; Emerging Leaders; Impact; Innovation; and Woman to Watch.
Individuals were nominated by their peers, members of the local community and the NJCPA for their contributions in advancing the accounting profession. Winners were announced during the NJCPA Annual Business Meeting on June 17 and will be featured in the fall issue of New Jersey CPA magazine.
“In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s a great time to acknowledge those individuals who went above and beyond during this past year,” said Ralph Albert Thomas (pictured), CEO and executive director of the NJCPA, in a statement. “The accounting profession is on the cusp of so many changes that it’s important to thank those who are leading the charge.”
