A new recognition program aims to honor young professionals who are changemakers in their business, industry and community.
The 4 under 40 Awards will name four individuals under 40 years of age who have demonstrated commitment to their industry, successful collaboration, leadership by example and/or a willingness to mentor and motivate others.
Nominations are now being accepted for the inaugural awards, which are organized by the Chamber's Young Professionals Network (YPN).
Daschle Larsen, McKinneyOlson Insurance, is a member of the YPN Steering Committee and one of the volunteers leading the effort to launch the 4 under 40 Awards. Larsen said, "There are so many young professionals out there who are making an impact. The 4 under 40 is a chance to celebrate their achievements and recognize the young leaders among us."
An online nomination form can be found at siouxfallsypn.com. All nominations must be received by 5 p.m. on June 28. A panel of volunteeers will review nominations and select the individuals to be honored.
All nominees and the four award winners will be recognized on August 15 at the Crossroads Summit. The event is a one-day, professional development conference that encourages people from all industries around the region to network, learn and build relationships.
