AICPA Honors CPAs Who Give Back

The American Institute of CPAs honored a one-time CPA who now runs a Nashville grocery and a Wisconsin CPA firm with publice service awards at its Spring Council meeting. Michael Shmerling of Choice Food Group founded Abe's Garden, which is building a dementia-oriented facility in Nashville. Although Shmerling has not practiced for over a decade, he asserts that he still practices the ethics of the profession and challenged other CPAs to get involved in community service. Schneck Business Solutions of Appleton, WI was awarded the business citation for involvement with a variety of volunteer groups and its fundraiser for a children's hospital.

Congratulations to each of the winners and to those others who actively contribute to their community, even when it does not receive immediate publicity.
