Call for Nominations
AAA/Deloitte Wildman Medal Award
History and Previous Winners
Thank you to the Deloitte Foundation for generously supporting the AAA/Deloitte Wildman Medal Award!
The Deloitte Wildman Award Committee is currently accepting nominations for the 2013–2014 Wildman Award.
The following rules govern the award:
- Subject to the further conditions as to eligibility set out in the following paragraphs, the medal and the related financial award is awarded annually at the American Accounting Associationís Annual Meeting to the author(s) of the article, monograph, book or other work, reflecting the results of their research or the application of the research of others, published during the five calendar years preceding the year of the award (2014) which is judged to have made or will be likely to make the most significant contribution to the advancement of the practice of public accountancy (including audit, tax and management services.) Note that in some cases a paper may be accepted for publication in a given calendar year and then may actually appear in a volume that carries an earlier calendar year as a publication date. In such cases, the year that the particular issue was actually published should be the date used to determine eligibility.
- A financial award of $5,000 accompanies the medal. In the event of multiple award winners, each recipient would receive $2,500 (up to three recipients; $7,500 maximum per year).
- Selection of the winner(s) will be made by a selection committee to be appointed each year by the Council Committee on Awards Committee. One member of this committee will be nominated by the Deloitte Foundation, if it so elects.
- The committee may, at its discretion, decide that in any particular year no award will be made.
- The Deloitte Foundation will periodically decide whether to extend this program.
- It is required that the winner(s) be a member of the AAA on February 1 of the year in which the published work is being considered. In the case of co-authored work, at least one author must meet the AAA membership test. However, the monetary award and gold medal(s) will go only to the author(s) who do meet the membership test.
Council members shall be asked in writing to suggest nominees for the Wildman Medal. The Screening Committee for the Notable Contributions to Accounting Literature Award shall be encouraged to submit candidates for the Wildman Award to the Wildman Committee.
At its meeting in March 1990, the AAA Executive Committee voted that the Wildman Award and the Notable Contributions to Accounting Literature Award serve different purposes and that it would be rare that one work would be the recipient of both of these awards.
