The Cobb Chamber of Commerce is proud to recognize the outstanding accomplishments and great deeds of the top young professionals in the community. Cobb Young Professionals, the Cobb Chamber’s networking group for young professionals in their 20s and 30s, is seeking nominations for the 2018 Next Generation Award. This award celebrates the accomplishments and influence of young professionals who, through hard work and commitment, have made an impact within the community.

Leadership Luncheons are also held quarterly, to allow young professionals the chance to have lunch and network with some of the most prominent business and community leaders in Cobb County.

"Cobb County has created an environment that cultivates business and growth and young professionals have taken notice. The “Under 40” population in Cobb continues to grow every year and they are making a difference in the community. This generation is one that wants to do better. They want to be leaders who create jobs and change, servants in their want to give back and disruptors who want to pave the way for their future. The Next Generation Award is an opportunity for Cobb Young Professionals and the Cobb Chamber to acknowledge those outstanding young professionals who bring a unique perspective to our community and will do so for many years to come," says Megan Stambaugh, 2018 Chairwoman of Cobb Young Professionals.

Any young professional in their 20s and 30s can be nominated, but only members of the Cobb Chamber can be honored with the award as a next generation leader.
