Nominate them today for the Elite 40 Class of 2020, or if you fit this criteria, enter yourself:
“The Elite 40 Under 40 program welcomes nominations of anyone under 40 dedicated and committed to improving the quality of life for others in our region,” County Executive David Coulter said. “As Oakland County executive, I want to hear from the next Elite 40 class about how the county can work toward a future that is responsive to the energy and creativity of young entrepreneurs.”
Nominations can be made at Elite40.com between now and November 4th. Candidates may enter themselves until 5:00 p.m. on November 8th. To be eligible, a candidate must live or work in Oakland County, be 18 years of age or older, and have been born after December 31, 1980.
A panel of former Elite 40 class members will review and score all completed applications based on the following criteria: leadership, community service, and overall community impact. From there, an independent panel of judges will select the top 40.
All 2020 class members will be invited to the State of the County address. In addition, members are invited to other county events and programs. Past members have joined the Oakland County Business Roundtable and other advisory committees within the county.
The Elite 40 Under 40 program, now in its ninth year, celebrates talented professionals between ages 18 and 39 who are shaping the future of Oakland County and beyond. The Elite 40 program, launched in 2012, honors young professionals and thought leaders who excel in their field and have demonstrated dynamic leadership.
