The Oklahoma Society of s Accounting Hall of Fame Award was created and first awarded in 1968 to honor members who extensively and generously contribute to the accounting profession. For the inductee selection, the Society incoming president appoints a nominating committee of prior recipients who then recommend a member to be considered for the award. Suggested criteria include participation and leadership in the OSCPA, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Oklahoma Accountancy Board, and in civic and community organizations. Members are also judged based on professional attainments, such as journal publication and career achievement.

With more than 6,600 members in public practice, industry, government and education, the OSCPA is Oklahoma’s only statewide professional association of s. Since 1918, the organization has continued to provide professional education, conduct quality reviews and promote and maintain high standards of integrity and competence within the accounting profession.
