Awards and Honours
ALTA has established an Awards Program to honour exemplary trustees and boards, and invites the participation of its members in nominating worthy colleagues for our two major awards. Descriptions of both awards and the criteria for them are available online, as are Nomination Forms to be printed out and submitted according to the guidelines. They can also be requested from the ALTA office through mail or fax.
Award nominations are to be submitted each year. Applications will be accepted until March 31st of every year. To apply, please download and submit the ALTA Award Nomination Form. For current award recipients, eligibility requirements, and application information, please follow the links below.
