40 under Forty nominess needed

OGLESBY — The Illinois Small Business Development Center at Illinois Valley Community College will host its fourth annual “40 Under Forty” event and is currently accepting nominations for the Class of 2014.

The SBDC is seeking names of young individuals who may be active and leading non-profit organizations, starting their own business or organization, active on a city or county board, or problem-solvers for their community, company, school district or organization. The 40 Under Forty event is a great reminder that this area attracts and retains young leaders.

Nominees should be living or working in the Illinois Valley area or Starved Rock region to make their communities, companies and organizations better.

All nominees must be 39 or younger as of Dec. 31, and at least 21 as of July 1.
