The Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with previous recipients of the Forty Under 40 Award, has identified a talented and diverse group of young professionals in the Hudson Valley to be presented with a Shaker Award. Bestowed annually to 40 people under the age of 40 who have shown a strong commitment to the Hudson Valley, the Shaker Awards honor the next generation of leaders in our region.
“After completing this year’s selection process, I couldn’t be more optimistic about the future of the Hudson River Valley,” said Charles North, President and CEO of the Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce. “Congratulations to all of the 2013 honorees. I know you’ll continue to do great things in our community for many years to come.”
