Leadership Center for Excellence held its first 40 Under 40 event in December 2014. This event recognizes 40 emerging leaders under the age of 40 who demonstrate impact personally and/or professionally through their exceptional leadership in the DC metropolitan region. 40 Under 40 is an opportunity to show support for and invest in this next generation of trailblazers.
For its inaugural event in December 2014, we received approximately 250 nominations to fill 40 spots. Additionally, the event sold out well in advance of the luncheon date and again in 2015, 2016 and 2017. Each year, we see impressive cohorts of trailblazers join our group of 40 Under 40.
40 Under 40 is an initiative of Leadership Center for Excellence in partnership with Arlington Chamber of Commerce, Arlington Economic Development and InsideNoVA.
