DEADLINE EXTENDED — GPN is Looking for 40 Under 40
The deadline for nominating someone to GPN’s inaugural 40 under 40 list has been extended until January 30, 2012.
In May, GPN will recognize 40 industry professionals under the age of 40 who will help determine the future of the horticulture industry. These individuals are today’s movers and shakers who are already setting the pace for tomorrow.
We want to shine the spotlight on 40 men and women whose career accomplishments have moved them to the forefront. Their professional track records have helped to establish them as some of today’s brightest stars — before their 40th birthday.

- Exemplary leadership skills;
- Creativity and innovation;
- Sustained career advancement;
- Dedication and personal integrity;
