Sidney Kess receives AICPA special recognition award.

Sidney Kess, an accounting lecturer and former partner at KPMG, has received the AICPA's 2003 Special Recognition Award for his work in continuing professional education. The award is given to a member of the Institute who has performed or contributed to the success of a particular project or initiative that benefits the profession.

"CPAs are better practitioners and serve the public more competently because of Sid's contributions to the profession," said S. Scott Voynich, AICPAVice Chairman, who presented the award. "At one time, one out of every four CPAs who attended an AICPA continuing education course attended a program that Sid personally taught. One out of three CPAs used a course that Sid authored."

Throughout his 40 years in the profession, Kess has lectured on tax, financial planning and estate planning to more than 700,000 CPAs and lay people. He is the author or co-author of 25 books on a variety of tax-related topics; several of his books have gone into as many as 30 editions. Kess has also edited several professional newsletters and developed a series of CPE video courses for the AICPA. He created and moderates the annual AICPA Conference on Tax Strategies for the High-Income Individual, serves on three editorial boards, and is a member of the National Board of Advisors for the New York University Law School Graduate Tax Program.
