MACAC Awards

MACAC annually recognizes the work and achievement of the MACAC Members. Nominations begin in March and awards are given during the annual spring conference.

Rising Star Award

The Rising Star Award was developed by NACAC to recognize the achievements of individuals who have been MACAC members for five years or less.  Candidates “must be people who are striving to make a difference within their association through their work on committees.” The recipient of this award is selected by the Member Relations committee via nominations received from MACAC members.  The MACAC Rising Star honoree may be nominated by MACAC to NACAC for the national Rising Star Award.
