Jeff Moore Receives AICPA Award
During the American Institute of CPAs’ National Forensic Accounting Conference held in Chicago in September, Jeff Moore, CPA/CFF, CFE, CIRA was recognized as the “2011 Outstanding CFF Champion” for his leadership within the CFF Champion community and his accomplishments that furthered the CFF credential within the Georgia Society of CPAs (GSCPA). The Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF) Champion Program is an AICPA initiative that offers CFF credential holders the support, structure and resources to collaborate with state CPA societies in informing CPAs about the importance of forensic accounting services.
Jeff was instrumental in the revamp and rebranding of the Forensic and Valuation Services Section (FVS Section) of the GSCPA where new, innovative ideas and programs were implemented. Examples include updating their mission statement and key goals, utilizing LinkedIn groups as a networking tool for their members, surveying section members, and hosting the annual GSCPA Fraud and Forensic Accounting Conference in which over 140 participants attended last year. He and three other fellow CFF Champions from Georgia were featured on a nationwide AICPA conference call held in June to discuss the role of the GSCPA’s FVS Section in assisting forensics practitioners and promoting the CFF credential. He also initiated and moderated an informal knowledge-sharing meeting at the recent AICPA National Forensic Accounting Conference.
In addition, the AICPA appointed Jeff as a member of the CFF Credential Committee for the 2011-12 volunteer service year. The purpose of this committee is to develop and maintain qualification requirements for credential applicants; to serve as technical advisor regarding the education offerings necessary to support the pathway for becoming a credential holder; to serve as technical advisor regarding the education offerings credential holders need to maintain and expand their expertise; and to develop and maintain initiatives to recruit and retain credential holders.
