The American Institute of CPAs has presented Irvin F. Diamond with its 2008 Personal Financial Planning Distinguished Service Award.

Diamond received the award at the AICPA's 2009 Advanced Personal Financial Planning Conference in San Diego. The PFP Distinguished Service Award is given to an AICPA volunteer who significantly contributes to the advancement of personal financial planning as a practice discipline and exemplifies the CPA as financial planner.

"Irv exemplifies what it means to be a CPA financial planner," said AICPA vice president of small-firm interests James Metzler in a statement. "Through his many years of volunteer work for our financial planning committees as well as those of his home state of New Mexico, Irv has worked tirelessly to advance the CPA's profile in the financial-planning arena."

Diamond is a founding member of the National CPA Financial Literacy Commission. He has also served as vice president and member of the AICPA's board of directors and was a past president of the New Mexico Society of CPAs. He is a senior principal at REDW Business and Financial Resources in Albuquerque.
