35 Under 35 is Gwinnett Young Professional’s annual selection of the most influential young professionals in Gwinnett. The recipients of the 35 Under 35 award will be announced during THEYPARTY – GYP’s signature event celebrating the mission of GYP and the young professionals who are making their mark in Gwinnett. The event will be held at Gas South Convention Center in Duluth, GA on September 26th.

During THEYPARTY, we will highlight these 35 influential young professionals in our community who are disruptors, innovators, and change-makers in their fields.

This prized individual will receive access to a myriad of opportunities, including one year of free admission to all GYP Connect, Grow, and Impact events, a designated GYP of the Year parking spot at the Gwinnett Chamber, and an invitation to serve on the GYP Advisory Board.
