Prestige Award

Recognizing Contributions to the Association & the Sector

As the leading professional development organization for municipal professionals, much of our success can be attributed to the success of our members who have contributed in a significant way to the Association, to their communities, to the growth of emerging local government leaders, and to the advancement of the municipal sector at large.

The Prestige Award is presented to an AMCTO member (past or present) each year who exemplifies and is committed to the ideals of the Association and whose contributions have made a positive impact on the Association, fellow members and municipal professionals, and their community.

Recipients of the Prestige Award are nominated by their fellow members and municipal professionals and must demonstrate a commitment to:

  • Fostering and sustaining municipal excellence through their contributions to the Association and the municipal profession
  • Giving back to the sector through the mentorship, training, education, and support of other municipal professionals and/or through the development and implementation of sound policies and legislation that have positively impacted the delivery of municipal programs and services
  • Giving back to their communities through volunteering
