Nominees are not restricted to those who live and/or work in Arlington; they simply have to be from the D.C. area, be under 40 years old by the awards luncheon on Dec. 4 and “demonstrate impact through their leadership personally and/or professionally,” according to a Leadership Arlington press release.
The criteria being considered is impact on the community or the individual’s professional situation. “This event is an opportunity to show support and invest in this next generation of trailblazers,” the nomination call states.
“We are very fortunate in our community to have so many impactful professionals under the age of 40,” said Betsy Frantz, president and CEO of Leadership Arlington. “Leadership Arlington is proud to be a forerunner in honoring this generation of trailblazers.”
The Dec. 4 luncheon will be at Army Navy Country Club (1700 Army Navy Drive). Leadership Arlington plans for this to be an annual event and “encourages self-nominations.” Those who want to nominate an individual can do so online.
