Award Criteria

Accounting Hall of Fame: The Accounting Hall of Fame is an award "recognizing accountants who are making or have made a significant contribution to the advancement of accounting" since the beginning of the 20th century. Inductees are from both accounting academia and practice. The Accounting Hall of Fame is well-known among accountants, if no one else.   The Hall of Fame describes: "While selection to the Hall of Fame is intended to honor the people so chosen, it is also intended to be recognition of distinguished service contributions to the progress of accounting in any of its various fields. Evidence of such service includes contributions to accounting research and literature, significant service to professional accounting organizations, wide recognition as an authority in some field of accounting, advancement of accounting education, and public service. A member must have reached a position of eminence from which the nature of his or her contributions may be judged." "Election to the Accounting Hall of Fame is perhaps the only longstanding national award for accountants and probably the only international one as well- in which both academic and practicing accountants vie for the same award. For hundreds of accountants working anonymously in offices across the nation & beyond, Accounting Hall of Fame is considered a career pinnacle. It is one of the higher honors available within accounting academia at least in Nigeria as evidenced by prominent announcements of inductions at annual meetings of Nigerian Accounting Association. The only comparable awards in Nigeria may be lifetime achievement awards of the Nigerian Accounting Association, which have also been received by many of the inductees. The sublist of inductees who are accounting academics, thus, includes many of the most notable accounting academics.   The recipients of the award are otherwise highly decorated, indeed it is the highest honour, it is Gold Medal Award.
