Call for nominations: Bond Buyer’s ‘Rising Stars’

Register now

The Bond Buyer is excited to kick off the fourth-annual Rising Stars program, showcasing the brightest young minds in the municipal bond industry.

The goal of the initiative: Identify municipal finance professionals under the age of 40 whose knowledge, collaborative spirit, innovation, and creativity have enabled them to make a positive contribution to the community and positioned them as future (or, in some cases, current) industry leaders.

To convene these exemplary professionals, we need your help. If you have a colleague or employee who fits the bill, please let us know by completing our nomination form. Honorees from our previous classes are ineligible to enter, but you are welcome to resubmit previous nominees who were not chosen and remain age-eligible. Submissions will be judged by a panel comprising The Bond Buyer’s editorial leadership as well as a diverse set of muni finance leaders.

The Bond Buyer's 2019 Rising Stars will be announced on the Bond Buyer website in September. Honorees will receive a complimentary invitation to our flagship California Public Finance conference, which begins September 23 in San Francisco, where they will be recognized before their peers. Select honorees will be invited to participate in a Rising Stars panel at the event, which I will moderate.

As the municipal finance industry advances, we're excited to showcase the people who will shape its future and to introduce them to the broader municipal finance community. Thank you in advance for your support of this initiative and we look forward to seeing you in California.
