Rising Star Award

The Rising Star Award, initially presented in 2011, is designed to identify and nurture new individuals to the profession and RMACAC.  Colleagues with less than five years of admission experience, and who have already made contributions to our organization, its members and the populations we serve, are deserving of this honor.  It is our hope that award recipients will be encouraged to continue their professional development through their involvement in RMACAC and NACAC.  Winners of this regional award will receive consideration for the national Rising Star Award from NACAC.

Nominations are now closed!
