“Each of these young professionals, with their impressive work ethic and dynamic leadership, has already made a significant impact in their business and in our community,” said Jeb Conrad, President & CEO of The Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce. “With their induction, our 2016 honorees join a highly-respected group of former 10 Under 40 awardees and remind us that our community is home to some of the best and brightest young leaders.”
This year’s “10 Under 40” award recipients will also receive a $500 scholarship to participate in the 2017 class of Leadership Bloomington-Monroe County. According to Kelsie Holt, Director of Talent, Education & Workforce for The Chamber, the scholarships provide an opportunity for our young leaders to further develop their leadership skills.
“The Chamber would like to thank Leadership Bloomington-Monroe County for their partnership and support of young professionals! With their support, we are excited to help our community’s young professionals continue on their leadership development paths,” she said.
The Chamber launched hYPe in 2011 to facilitate professional and personal development while encouraging networking among young professionals who live, learn, work, and play in the Bloomington area. The 10 Under 40 Awards were introduced that same year. Since its inception over 600 young professionals have participated, deepening their engagement and professional relationships within Monroe County.
“From non-profits to large corporations, to the arts and higher education, onto entrepreneurs and small businesses – our honorees represent the diversity of businesses found here in our community. It’s reassuring to know that this next generation of leaders is helping to guide our organizations and businesses forward,” said Conrad.
Similar to our hYPe events, the 10 Under 40 Awards celebration will include time to network among attendees prior to the awards presentation. The event begins 6:30 p.m. and concludes at 8:30 p.m. Seats for the July 28 event are $22 per person, which includes your seat at the event, heavy hors d'oeuvres and a drink ticket. Tables of eight are $400, which also includes preferred seating and additional marketing benefits.
