The AICPA announced that Robert Harris is the recipient of the Institute’s 2014 Gold Medal Award for Distinguished Service.

The Gold Medal is the highest award granted by the AICPA and is given to CPAs who have made major contributions to the CPA profession. Harris received the award at the fall meeting of the AICPA governing council.

He began his position of influence as a young CPA, when he was elected to the AICPA PCPS Executive Committee at 33. His early accomplishments helped to inspire the next generation of professionals to volunteer.
