The National Association for State Boards of Accountancy is calling for nominations for its national “Being a Difference Award” program to recognize ethical leadership among business professionals and within the business community.

Established in 2006, the award program honors individuals for their exceptional contributions to ethical leadership in business. Past recipients have ranged from executives at Fortune 500 corporations to individuals who have worked courageously, but quietly, in support of the public trust. A total of 16 honorees have been named since the program’s inception.

The NASBA Center for the Public Trust is currently seeking nominations from a variety of businesses and industries across the nation. NASBA CPT supporters and the business community at-large are encouraged to nominate individuals who are making a difference in their careers, communities and other endeavors by embodying the best in principled behavior and integrity.

NASBA is also calling attention to the fact that March is National Ethics Awareness Month, an annual event in which ethics organizations and businesses across the country seek to promote integrity and ethical behavior.
