The Pennsylvania Institute of CPAs is seeking nominations for its 2010 Distinguished Public Service Award.

The deadline for nominations is Nov. 20. Since 1981, PICPA annually recognizes a Pennsylvania CPA who is a community service leader, active volunteer, and advocate for worthwhile causes. This is PICPA’s top honor.

The winner is chosen by a panel of community leaders from across the state, and will be honored at the institute’s annual meeting and conference in June. The winner will also be featured in the Pennsylvania CPA Journal and be nominated for the American Institute of CPAs’ public service award. Nominations for the 2010 PICPA Distinguished Public Service Award can be made by visiting

Past winners include Kenneth N. Hugendubler, who helped to revitalize the Humane Society of Harrisburg; Richard L. Kramer, who, with the help of the Greater Wilkes-Barre Jaycees, founded Big Brothers/Big Sisters of the Bridge; and Raymond C. Keller of Carlisle, who served on the Pennsylvania Veterans Commission and helped raise several million dollars to develop the Pennsylvania Veterans Memorial.
