Winston Under 40

The Chamber’s Winston Under 40 program offers opportunities for young professionals to learn, grow, and work together.

Focusing on three core goals of leadership development, community involvement, and networking opportunities, the program helps to build our next generation of leaders and create a collective network of young professionals across all industries.

Throughout the year, you’ll be able to take advantage of unique leadership development programs such as the Lunch With Leaders and Emerging Leaders series. At our annual celebration, we recognize twenty of the community’s standout young leaders at the Leadership Awards reception.

The Winston Under 40 program encourages community involvement through connections to nonprofit service opportunities, as well as an annual nonprofit partnership. The 2019 community partner is Bookmarks.
