Nominations Deadline: January 31 at 11:59 pm Eastern Time

Charge

Coordinate all activities necessary to screen candidates for the Notable Contributions to Accounting Literature Award and the Distinguished Contributions to Accounting Literature Award. Specifically:

  • Identify works of exceptional merit from published accounting books and articles that meet the criteria for the "Notable Contributions" award.
  • Identify works of exceptional merit from published accounting books and articles that meet the criteria for the "Distinguished Contributions" award.
  • The Screening Committee for the Notable and Distinguished Contributions to Accounting Literature Award shall be encouraged to submit candidates for the Deloitte Foundation Wildman Award to the Deloitte Foundation Wildman Award Committee.
  • Actively seek and submit nominations
  • Review and evaluate nominations
  • Current Committee members who are nominated for the "Notable Contributions" award or the "Distinguished Contributions" award will be asked to either recuse themselves from the Committee or remove their nomination from consideration.
  • All nominees nominated for a given year’s award – who are not selected for that year’s award – will be automatically considered for the award for the following 2 years – as long as the nominated work(s) meets the publishing requirements (see award criteria for details). Nominees who were not selected for the 2020 Notable Contributions to Accounting Literature Award or for the 2020 Distinguished Contributions to Accounting Literature Award will be considered during the selection process for the 2021 Award and, if not chosen for the 2021 Award, will also be considered for the 2022 Award.  At the end of the selection process for the 2022 Award, if a qualified nominee has not been chosen as the award recipient or has not been re-nominated, he/she will no longer be considered for the award. 
  • If the Chair has any questions about the charge or responsibilities of this committee, s/he should contact the Chief Executive Officer, the President, or the Committee's Board of Directors Liaison.
