The Top 10 in 10 Young Professionals to Watch award was developed in 2009 by the Augusta Metro Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Augusta Magazine, to annually highlight ten young professionals (age 25-35) in the Greater Augusta Region.  In distinguishing these individuals, the Chamber aims to expand recognition for Augusta’s young professional talent throughout Georgia.  The Top 10 are featured in the June issue of Augusta Magazine, and the Chamber nominates these top young professionals for Georgia Trend magazine’s 40 under 40.  Each recipient will be honored at the Chamber’s upcoming Member Economic Series event.  To learn more and see previous recipients of the Top 10 in 10 Young Professionals to Watch award, please visit
