Accounting Excellence

Janet Greenlee has won the prestigious Max Block Award from the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants.

Janet S. Greenlee, associate professor of accounting at the University of Dayton, has won an award from the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants for an article on analyzing the performance of charitable organizations.

"Better Analytical Reviews of Charitable Organizations: Using Financial Ratios and Benchmarks," published in July 2011, was recognized with a 2011 Max Block Award as an outstanding article in the area of informed content, according to the society.

Greenlee co-wrote the article with David W. Randolph and Sandra B. Richtermeyer, both faculty members at Williams College of Business at Xavier University. The article examines Form 990 tax information submitted to the IRS to develop meaningful financial ratios and suitable benchmarks for evaluating the performance of charitable organizations.

Greenlee is a nationally recognized expert on white collar crime, accounting fraud and nonprofit accounting. She frequently speaks to law enforcement groups and has been quoted about white collar crime and fraud in The New York Times and The Chronicle of Philanthropy, among others. She is a CPA and certified in financial forensics.

Three Max Block Awards are presented annually to recognize innovative and thought-provoking articles published in the society's monthly journal, The CPA Journal.

The CPA Journal is a peer-reviewed technical publication aimed at public and private accounting practitioners, managers, educators and other financial professionals. The editors receive hundreds of manuscripts annually from accounting educators and other professionals to consider for publication in the Journal. The awards will be presented at the CPA Journal's annual editorial board meeting on June 4.
