About the Awards Process
Nominate yourself or a colleague for the recognition they deserve. The TMA Global Individual Excellence, Emerging Leader, and Chapter Impact Awards recognize individuals who have gone above and beyond for TMA. Do you know someone who fits that bill? Consider nominating them today. Please see below for the descriptions of each Individual Award.
A letter of recommendation addressed to the TMA Chapter & Individual Awards Committee from the nominee’s TMA Chapter President is highly encouraged but not required. You can also submit letters of recommendation from a personal or professional reference.

Whether assisting with a pro bono case or serving in a TMA leadership position, this individual raises the awareness and stature of the corporate restructuring industry. Winners of this award are TMA members with at least 10 years of industry experience and five or more years of TMA involvement. This award honors the dedication of those outstanding individuals who give back to their profession.
Emerging leaders bring vibrancy, dedication, and energy to volunteer organizations, from fresh ideas to cutting-edge technology suggestions. Without these innovative perspectives, an association would flounder. The winner in this category can be an active TMA NextGen volunteer or a professional new to the turnaround and restructuring field.
Chapters and their leadership are the foundation of TMA. The winner in the chapter impact category can be someone who founded a TMA chapter, spearheaded a successful chapter program or event, or strengthened the chapter. This award honors the dedication of a TMA member who has shown outstanding leadership and service at the chapter level.
