PHILADELPHIA – The Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) recognizes Kelly M. Godfrey, CPA, with a 2017 Young Leader Award. She received this distinction for demonstrated leadership skills that will propel her success in a profession committed to protecting the public interest.
Godfrey, of Wyomissing, Pa., is a manager for the audit services group with RKL LLP in Wyomissing. She has been active with PICPA’s Reading Chapter Emerging CPAs Committee and the statewide Not for Profit and Professional Ethics committees.
PICPA’s Young Leader Awards program recognizes members under the age of 40 who demonstrate a commitment to the CPA profession through active PICPA or community volunteer leadership.
“The talent and passion of this year’s young leaders have been instrumental in helping the PICPA inspire future accountants and fill the accounting pipeline,” says Joseph E. Seibert, PICPA president. “We couldn’t be prouder of them, and are looking forward to what they have in store next.”
The group was honored Sept. 18 at PICPA’s annual Leadership Conference in Harrisburg, Pa. To view a full list of recipients, visit www.picpa.org/youngleaders.
