The Investment Industry Association of Canada (IIAC) issued a reminder on Monday that there are less than two weeks remaining to nominate an individual for the 2017 edition of the IIAC Top Under 40 Award.
The award, now in its fifth year of existence, recognizes the accomplishments of an individual under the age of 40 who has "brought distinction to the investment/financial industry," IIAC's announcement states.
Nominees must be full-time employees of an IIAC member firm and must not be a previous recipient to qualify. An independent committee will oversee the selection process, looking for candidates who have demonstrated a commitment to the financial services sector through involvement in professional organizations, charitable service or professional development.
The recipient, who will be named at a luncheon on Oct. 26 in Toronto, will be awarded a mentorship opportunity with a high-ranking industry leader, set up through the Smarten Up Institute. The winner will also be offered an individualized course of their choosing with Smarten Up, or a course a partner university or college.
In addition, the recipient will be recognized at the IIAC Investment Industry Hall of Fame gala dinner.
The nomination period ends on June 30 at 5 p.m. ET.
