Nominations are now open for the 2022 Next Generation Leader Awards (NGLAs), presented by Northern Kentucky Young Professionals (NKYP). A program of the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, the NGLAs honor young professionals under the age of 40 for significant accomplishments within their chosen professional field, as well as their commitment, and contributions to the community.
