The Bond Buyer is excited to announce the return of the Hall of Fame of municipal finance for a second class of inductees, alongside the eighth annual class of Rising Stars, a program which showcases the brightest young minds in this industry.

New this year, a “legacy wing” will be added to the Hall of Fame for posthumous honorees.

These individuals will be honored collectively during the ceremony with a special video tribute, alongside speeches by the living honorees. This year’s nomination form allows you to distinguish between living candidates and those eligible for posthumous honors in the legacy wing.

Candidates are eligible across all areas of specialties of the municipal finance community. Nominees do not need to be partially or completely retired to qualify, but must have been involved in extensive, influential work for a lifetime achievement honor. 

Concurrently, the Rising Stars program recognizes municipal finance professionals under the age of 40 who have made positive contributions for their community while demonstrating exceptional leadership, excellent collaboration skills, innovation and creativity in their roles.

Honorees from previous years are ineligible, but resubmissions of previous candidates who were not chosen and remain age-eligible will be accepted. 

These Hall of Fame and Rising Stars programs shine a light on outstanding municipal finance leadership by honoring the past and recognizing the future. Whether they’ve already built their legacies or they’re still in the process, these are individuals whose character and innovative spirit will inspire others in the sector.

All applications will be judged by a panel with The Bond Buyer’s editorial leadership and a diverse group of municipal finance leaders. Nominations will close on May 5th, 2023.

The Hall of Fame honorees will be announced on the Bond Buyer website during mid-July; the Rising Stars class will be published during early August. Both groups will be honored at The Bond Buyer INFRASTRUCTURE event, which takes place on Sept. 12-13 at The Palmer House in Chicago. A dinner celebrating the new classes of Hall of Famers and Rising Stars will be held Sept. 13.
