The 20 Under 40 program is new to the San Angelo Chamber of Commerce, and along with the support from a newly formed committee, we have worked diligently to improve nominations, selections, recognition, and the awards ceremony itself.

The judges were unaffiliated with the 20 Under 40 Committee and received redacted nomination forms for scoring. The judges themselves did not meet, nor did they know the identity of their fellow judges. To ensure that the award selections were completely impartial, participants were selected based upon a blind point system and given to an anonymous selection committee.

A ceremony will be held to honor these outstanding young professionals in our community on Thursday, October 28. Tickets are available for purchase now until Monday, October 18 at

Special thanks to our Presenting Sponsor, Shannon Health.
