Huntington Chamber Announces Young Professional Honorees


The Huntington Chamber of Commerce and its Young Professionals committee is thrilled to announce its highly anticipated 11th Annual “Celebrate Long Island’s Young Professionals” awards ceremony. Thirty of Long Island’s young professionals, all under the age of 30, will be celebrated for their civic engagement, philanthropy and success in their career at Crest Hollow Country Club from 6-10 p.m., May 7.

Each year we accept the arduous task of sifting through many applicants and referrals for this prestigious award. Although Long Island is a mecca for many brilliant young pros, these 30 respected individuals were selected for their unique and compelling achievements within their organization and their local community.

Guests will enjoy live entertainment, delicious food stations, unique raffles prizes and beer tastings of our first ever, “YPL”, brewed by this year’s Young Professionals honorees courtesy of Six Harbors Brewing Company. In addition, this will be the third year presenting our “Scott Martella Alumni Award”, given to a past honoree who has not only continued but strengthened their bond with their local
community. This year’s honoree is Evan Proios, Communications Analyst, Suffolk Community College.

It’s truly an honor for the Huntington Chamber to centerpiece the efforts exercised by our millennials in 2019. From creating innovative ideas to designing initiatives that improve quality of life, these 30 trusted honorees are role model citizens for the next generation to mirror. The Huntington Chamber’s Young Professionals Committee was created to help many young professionals connect and utilize each other’s resources. Its fabric consists of many influential people from all business sectors.
