ALEXANDRIA, VA – Young executives, teachers, realtors, artists, small business owners and community leaders anticipate the announcement of  “Alexandria’s 40 Under 40 list” the way some of us used to run up to school bulletin boards after a test to see where we ranked. Today, The Alexandria Chamber of Commerce has just released the list, and social media is abuzz with shares.

The 40 under 40 program was established in 2016 by the Chamber to recognize top men and women, age 40 and under, engaged in a variety of fields including business, technology, nonprofit management, civic life, public service, education, and the arts, who are shaping Alexandria for the future.

“We are proud to announce our 2020 40/40 Honorees! These 40 individuals will be celebrated at the 2020 40/40 Awards reception, presented by Beyer Subaru, to be held on October 29, 2020 at the United Way Worldwide building,” the Chamber said in a press release.
