The Greater Beaumont Chamber of Commerce, Southeast Texas Young Professionals Organization and SoutheastTexas.com will honor the best and brightest young professionals under the age of 40 for their academic achievements, professional success and community involvement with the 40 Under 40 awards.
Young professionals are a vital asset to our region, and it is essential to recognize and acknowledge those who are making great strides in shaping our community's future. The emphasis is on leadership, whether it's in business, law, real estate, non-profits, education, healthcare, arts, and entertainment or other industries. Let's not forget about our entrepreneurs!
