Staten Island Chapter Board Member

The Staten Island Chapter recently presented awards to two of its members. Frank J. DeCandido, a long-term officer, was recognized at the annual new officer installation dinner, held at the Stone House at Clove Lakes restaurant on May 16, and Frank J. Aquilino, a past president, was honored at Mike’s Dakota Diner at the chapter’s monthly meeting on July 26.

DeCandido, the current treasurer of the chapter, received its 2019 Above and Beyond award. This award pays tribute to active chapter members in recognition of numerous years of volunteer service and community involvement.

Owner of Frank J. DeCandido, CPA, PLLC and an active member of the professional association for over 18 years, DeCandido has served on several statewide committees and numerous chapter committees. Also an active member of the Staten Island community, he is a former advisory board member of the GRACE Foundation of New York and a former adjunct lecturer at Wagner College. He has served in several capacities with Lifestyles for the Disabled, Inc., Staten Island CYO and Staten Island Youth Soccer League.

Aquilino received the Staten Island Chapter’s 2019 Hall of Fame award. The award is presented annually to past presidents in recognition of their professional accomplishments within the organization.

Since he joined the Society in 1976. there have been few committees on which Aquilino has not served, and few positions that he has not held over the years. He is a published author and he frequently contributes to The CPA Journal. He is also a professor and acting chair of the new Department of Hospitality and Tourism at Montclair State University in Montclair, N.J. A dedicated educator, he is an instructor for CPA review courses. His commendations are extensive, and most notably, he sits on the AICPA Governing Council and is a board member of the  Foundation for Accounting Education.
