Rising Stars Program

ASA’s Rising Stars Program is specially designed for members age 40 and under to foster professional growth through mentoring, career advancement through networking events, leadership growth through national or local chapter volunteer opportunities and recognition through an annual awards program.

  • Mentoring: Candidate members are eligible to participate in ASA’s Mentoring Program, where individuals are partnered with senior members who provide insight and encouragement throughout the final stages of the accreditation process;
  • Networking: Various events are held throughout the year at National Conferences or at local venues hosted by ASA Chapters;
  • National/Local Chapter Volunteer Opportunities: Numerous opportunities are available for new members to become volunteer leaders; and
  • Annual Awards: The Rising Stars Award honors the brightest young valuation professionals who have demonstrated success throughout the fiscal year; men and women across our industry who are making a difference in our professions and in our community. Eligible nominees must be age 40 and under, and will be judged on their accomplishments, leadership, community efforts and milestones. Nominations must include detail of the nominee’s efforts and a digital photo of the nominee must be submitted. Self-nominations are welcomed. Nominations are collected in the spring with winners announced in the fall at the Annual ASA Membership Meeting and Awards Luncheon held in conjunction with the International Appraisers Conference.

Congratulations to the six 2018 ASA Rising Stars Award winners selected: Nicolas Ballian, Nicholas Janiga, ASA, Fawn Romero, ASA, Timothy Roy, ASA, Megan Salehli, ASA and Shane Weber, ASA, IFA.
