Young leadership program seeks nominations

Nominations are being sought for the 19th annual 20 Under 40 Leadership Recognition Program which showcases young, dynamic leaders in Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan under the age of 40.

Those nominated will be asked to complete a profile to include information on their career, achievements and community involvement. An independent panel of judges selects the 20 candidates for recognition.
