Briefly Speaking

Levon Johnson


By Levon Johnson
Chamber President/CEO

Forty Under 40

Our region has been fortunate to have talented and dedicated professionals throughout our history. These leaders have shown persistence in pursuing their career, had demonstrated success in the work they do, have a love for the communities in which they love, and exhibit a spirit of service and giving back through their involvement with civic and charitable focused organizations.

For the past 12 years, Michiana Forty under 40 has recognized individuals under the age of 40 who have shown the characteristics mentioned above. In 2019 the next group of young professionals and leaders will be recognized. This recognition is truly a Michiana award and includes  Elkhart, LaPorte, Marshall, St. Joseph, and Starke counties in Indiana, as well as Berrien and Cass counties in Michigan.

480 individuals have been recognized by Michiana Forty under 40 in the past and now your help is needed in nominating individuals for this year. Nominations are now open until March 8. Information and the nomination form can be found here.

This year’s awards luncheon will be held in May in Elkhart. We look forward to finding out the next group of Michiana Forty under 40.

Have a productive and positive week.
