Special Award Presented to Clarke Price

I have known Clarke Price for many, many years. Simply put, he is a class act. I am so pleased to report on the special award he received last week.

At the June 19th Ohio Society of CPAs (OSCPA) Members Summit & Annual Meeting in Columbus, more than 500 CPAs looked on as J. Clarke Price, CAE, president and CEO of The Ohio Society of CPAs, became the second of only two non CPAs in OSCPA’s long history to receive the Gold Medal for Meritorious Service to the Accounting Profession. More than 20 past Gold Medal recipients joined Price on stage as he accepted OSCPA’s highest honor.

Price will retire December 31 after 40 years with OSCPA. During his 22-year tenure as president and CEO, he has led several high-profile legislative initiatives for OSCPA including driving tort reform, overhauling Ohio’s antiquated tax code and the 2009 creation of the Ohio Budget Advisory Task Force in response to Ohio’s $8 billion budget crisis.

On September 21, Price will be speaking to the Ohio Chapter of The Association for Accounting Administration. Price has been a dedicated supporter of the important role of firm administrators working in public accounting firms and especially of the Ohio Chapter of AAA.
