(Lansing, MI) -- For the eighth consecutive year, the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce (LRCC) and Grand River Connection (GRC) will recognize the Lansing region’s top young professionals who are expected to contribute significantly to our community over the next ten years at the 10 Over the Next Ten Awards held September 23 at the University Club of Lansing.

“We are excited to again partner with the Lansing Regional Chamber to recognize the next crop of young professionals who will become the business and community leaders of tomorrow,” said Brian Gallagher, President of Grand River Connection.

To nominate a young professional under the age of 35 (and who also meets the criteria listed above); please contact either the Lansing Regional Chamber or GRC to acquire a nomination form.
