The Outstanding Public Service Award honors members who have made a difference to the community through their commitment to public service. Recognizing these individuals serves to inspire and empower others to follow their example of giving back to the community.
The following characteristics and activities will be considered:
- Significant contribution to and impact on the community through service to charitable, civic, and/or governmental organizations.
- Diversity of service activities over an extended period of time.
- Level of leadership, innovation, initiative, and involvement.
Please note that only public service activities should be described. Professional service related to accounting organizations is not considered in determining the award winner and, therefore, should not be included.
All nominees must be MOCPA members. To nominate a candidate, please complete these steps:

Testimonials may be solicited from people with whom the candidate works closely, such as his or her supervisor, a colleague, someone mentored by the candidate, a client, or someone who works with an associated charitable organization.
