Thursday night was an exciting time at the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce, when we announced the winners of the sixth annual Nashville Emerging Leader Awards (NELAs).
These 15 young professionals are involved in Middle Tennessee through volunteering and public service, but they are also making tremendous growth within their personal careers.
From more than 400 nominations, our 69 volunteer judges identified 75 NELAs finalists
in 15 industry categories, which were announced last month. Young professionals are one of the most important demographic groups in Nashville today and the future of Middle Tennessee. They are the leaders of tomorrow and often the most involved in community organizations.
The NELAs were developed to celebrate young professionals under the age of 40 who excel in leadership, community impact, contribution to the economy and personal achievement. We have seen the awards program grow each year since its inception in 2007, and we are proud to recognize all the winners and finalists this year!

and Nashville Business Journal.
If you know an extraordinary young professional who has what it takes to join this elite group, please be sure to nominate
him or her for the 2013 NELAs.
Seventy-five NELAs finalists, representing 15 industry categories, were honored last night at the sixth annual Nashville Emerging Leader Awards. The finalists are shown here on the steps of Collins Alumni Auditorium on the campus of Lipscomb University.
