40 Under 40 Awards

Every year at the TDM Forum, ACT recognizes a group of professionals under 40 with its 40 Under 40 Awards. These awards are given to ambitious leaders working to find creative solutions to improve the quality of life of all commuters and the livability of communities, and developing TDM programs that shift behavior. Transportation affects everyone, and these inspiring individuals are creating a better journey for everyone.

Congratulations to 2023 40 Under 40 Recipients!

Winners are awarded based on:

  • What makes the candidate stand out;
  • A brief description of the nominee as a leader in TDM and any major accomplishments, including publications, awards, certifications, etc.;
  • A brief statement on how the nominee has contributed to improving TDM access for under-represented, marginalized, and BIPOC communities; 
  • And how the nominator sees the nominee making a positive impact on the TDM community in the next 3-5 years
Nominations must be submitted by an ACT member. However, the nominee does not have to be an ACT member to receive the 40 Under 40 Award. Nominees must be under the age of 40 at the time of the TDM Forum in November in order to be eligible. Self nominations are accepted.

We encourage nominees to plan ahead for travel to the TDM Forum.

Thank you to this year's 40 Under 40 sponsor!
