Leadership Arlington’s 40 Under 40 Reception
The reception was held at the Arlington Economic Development on Thursday, July 30, 2015.
Leadership Arlington gathered the inaugural 40 Under 40 honorees from the 2014 event for a reception with Congressman Beyer at Arlington Economic Development on Thursday, July 30, 2015.
Launching 40 Under 40 directly reflects Leadership Arlington’s mission to enlighten, inspire and connect leaders to strengthen the community. 40 Under 40 is an initiative that builds social and intellectual capital for the DC metro community amongst this leadership group as they move into key decision making positions. The under-40 demographic represents a large segment of the area’s population. Leadership Arlington and the community as a whole have the responsibility to empower and celebrate this civically-minded, future leadership.
The 40 Under 40 reception brought together honorees from the inaugural selection, public officials such as Senator Barbara Favola and Delegate Pat Hope, Leadership Arlington Board of Regents members and sponsors, including Comcast and Accenture. Recognizing the power this group of individuals has to make change, Congressman Beyer attended the reception and shared words of leadership. Congressman Beyer, similarly to Leadership Arlington, believes in connecting this generation of leaders.
40 Under 40 is a societal call to action to identify the next generation of emerging leaders and trailblazers in the DC metro region. The event is hosted by Leadership Arlington with supporting partners Arlington Chamber of Commerce, Arlington Community Foundation, Arlington Economic Development and Arlington Sun Gazette. 40 Under 40 recognizes 40 emerging leaders under the age of 40 who demonstrate impact personally and/or professionally through their exceptional leadership.
