NOMINATE AN AMSA MEMBER FOR THE PEER AWARD!
AMSA’s Peer Award recognizes long-standing commitment to AMSA and its member development – through peer mentoring, support and best practice sharing. Commitment to AMSA and the field of public works, as well as members contributions to AMSA’s operations are measured, as AMSA members nominate Peer Award recipients annually.
This prestigious award is granted to qualified individuals, following a majority vote of AMSA’s Board of Directors.
Since its inception in 2013, AMSA’s Peer Award recipients list is a small group of members who have gone above and beyond the call of duty to support their municipalities, their peers in other municipalities and the best interests of the public works field in Alberta.
If you know of a worthy AMSA member that you'd like to nominate for this award, please send an email to email@example.com Be sure to include a brief summary describing the members experience, contributions to the association and why they should be selected.
