Meet the Class of 2017!

*******************************************************

In May, GPN recognizes 40 industry professionals under the age of 40 who are helping to determine the future of the horticulture industry. These individuals are today’s movers and shakers who are already setting the pace for tomorrow.

These individuals are this year’s superstars who will be leading our industry into the future — and are in a class by themselves! These young men and women were nominated by their peers for the contributions they have made to their companies, customers and communities so far … and for the many contributions they will make in the years to come.

For more information on GPN’s 40 Under 40, please contact Tim Hodson at thodson@greatamericanpublish.com.

**We will begin accepting nominations for the Class of 2018 in November.**
