The Alexandria Chamber of Commerce is launching a region-wide 40 Under 40 awards program, with the aim of recognizing emerging leaders less than 40 years of age. The goal of the program is to highlight the significant, personal impact of successful young professionals across a variety of sectors, who, over the next few years, will have a significant effect on the advancement of our region.
The program is open to all individuals who either live, work, or volunteer in the City of Alexandria. Organizational or company membership in the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce is not required in order to submit an application. Individuals may apply, or nominate an employee or peer.
A cross-section of Alexandria business and community leaders will select the 40 Under 40 recipients. Winners will be announced with the help of our Founding Media Partner Alexandria Gazette, our Media Partner Alexandria Times, and our Video Partner Mind & Media. An awards reception will be held on Thursday, July 28, 2016. Stay tuned for more information on the event.
“The inaugural class of Alexandria’s 40 Under 40 will set the bar incredibly high for those who follow. Being recognized with this award, at an early point in a young professional’s career, is a recognition of their high potential. We look forward to seeing what these distinguished individuals will continue to accomplish, “said Robert Shea, 2016 Board Chair, Alexandria Chamber of Commerce.
