Edward A. Weinstein of New York will receive the New York State Society of CPAs’ Distinguished Service Award.

The award recognizes CPAs who have been NYSSCPA leaders and provided outstanding service to the profession through publications, public service and other activities.

Weinstein joined the society in 1962 and served as president from 1980-81, as well as serving as a member of several professional committees over the years – including serving as chairman of the Committee on Equal Opportunity and Professional Advancement, a forerunner to many efforts to induce minorities (then including women) into the profession. In 1992, he received the society’s Arthur J. Dixon Public Service Award and has worked with more than 25 civic groups.

Weinstein also served as chairman for the Crimestoppers Committee of the New York City Police Department.  The committee was a public service in which citizens, working with the police, would provide funds for anonymous tipsters, which helped get felons off the streets quickly. 

Weinstein was a partner at Touche Ross & Co., as well as its successor, Deloitte & Touche, for 30 years.  He will accept the award at the organization’s annual dinner in May.
