The ITE Canada Rising Stars Program is intended to identify the next generation and new faces of the transportation profession. It is designed to recognize members under the age of 35 who have already made an impact on the profession, have demonstrated the ability to lead the next generation, and have implemented innovative techniques to solve transportation problems.
Each Section of ITE Canada is encouraged to nominate a local Rising Star to represent the Canadian District. Nominations should be submitted by Section presidents to the ITE Canada Executive Committee by March 1st. The winner of the ITE Canada Rising Star is, in turn, nominated for consideration in the ITE Rising Star Program.
All current and previous ITE Rising Stars selections still meeting the eligibility requirements will then also be further evaluated for the ITE Young Member of the Year Award.
The ITE Canada award includes recognition at the Annual ITE Canada Conference, a $1,000 travel allowance to the conference and the opportunity to be nominated for the ITE Rising Star Award.
All nominations are to be submitted no later than March 1st.
