For the first time in NCCPAP history, two of our distinguished leaders have been recognized by Accounting Today in its popular annual industry publication: Top 100 Most Influential People in Accounting. Congratulations NCCPAP President, Mark A. Stewart Jr. and Tax Co-Chair and NPL Liaison, Stephen Mankowski. Both were featured and quoted in this year’s supplement.

Who else made the list? Joe Biden, Sue Coffey, Erin Collins, Gary Gensler, J. Russell George, and Mitch McConnell, Barry Melancon, Nancy Pelosi, and Charles Rettig…to name a few. As expected, NCCPAP keeps good company.

Mark A. Stewart Jr., CPA
President, NCCPAP
Stewart’s National Conference of CPA Practitioners is not just a voice for its tens of thousands of members at small accounting firms — it’s also a voice for the millions of small businesses they serve, a role that has been crucial as they all try to face the challenges of the pandemic.

“Despite the changes we deal with in the profession every day, this is and always will be a people business.”


Stephen Mankowski, CPA, CGMA
Tax Co-Chair and NPL Liaison, NCCPAP

Through his frequent interactions with and deep understanding of the IRS and the tax pro community, Mankowski is an important go-between to help them better serve their mutual client, the taxpayer.

“The guidance that I would give future influencers of the profession is that we all have an inherent responsibility to leave the profession in a better position than when we joined it.”

Please congratulate our leaders on this terrific accomplishment.
