member of the year

2024 Rising Star Nominations Open

Each year, ATO recognizes an emerging leader in the trust industry whose record reflects ongoing and exceptional growth in contribution to the profession and increased levels of leadership and responsibility. They are nominated for the annual honor by their peers and colleagues, and we want to know who you think should be the individual this year. Honorees will be recognized in the Trust Bulletin, on our website and at the ATO Annual Meeting, held in September 2024.

If you know an ATO member who is already making waves, nominate the person for this special honor. Honorees should not yet reach a senior-level position, but their track record should reflect a strong potential for an appointment at the highest levels of the profession.

  • Candidates must be early to mid-stage in their careers.
  • Candidates may not have attained the rank of the president, CEO or COO.
  • Candidates must have demonstrated exceptional and ongoing achievements and have made significant and demonstrable contributions to their organization and the profession.
  • Candidates may not be currently serving on the ATO board.
