Leaders Under 40

Help us recognize leaders!

We see the difference you’re making in the Stillwater community and we want to recognize you and others for those contributions. Young Professionals of Stillwater began Leaders Under 40 (previously Emerging Leaders) to celebrate the accomplishments of those who are making a difference in Stillwater – personally, professionally and civically. Leaders may be nominated by themselves or others. If you live and/or work in Stillwater, and you are under 40, you are invited to apply to be recognized as a dynamic, young community leader. 

Chamber staff and YPS board members are eligible for the award. To create equity for the awards, all judging is blind and the judges are not associated with the Chamber staff or YPS board.  Applicants who move on to round two will be notified by September 27th to the email provided. By submitting this application, you are agreeing to sign up for the free YPS membership and communications. 

We hope that you will join us as we recognize these leaders and celebrate the accomplishments of all of our nominees.

Why You Should Partner with Us

"Being a member of the Chamber has introduced us to so many wonderful people. Our fellow chamber members never cease to amaze us with their support and friendship. We thank each of them for all they do for us as a business, and, more importantly, what they are doing to better our wonderful community."

Matt Sullins, Stonecloud Patio & Taproom

"One of my favorite quotes: Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much. Everyone has been so welcoming and helpful, I am so proud to be a member of the Stillwater Chamber."

Kristi Wilhelm, Cornerstone Caregiving

"As a chamber member, you gain access to an influential network that allows you to forge connections, champion your cause, and unite people in support of critical endeavors such as the efforts of Wings of Hope Family Crisis Services."

Lelani Mooreland, Wings of Hope Family Crisis Services

"The Stillwater Chamber was instrumental for me to get connected in the business community when I moved back to Stillwater. Since joining, I got my name out, went from Member to Committee Chair, but more importantly, I made many key friends I would not have otherwise."

Bryan Langford-Loftis, Loftis & Wetzel Insurance

"Invest in your business by getting involved in the Stillwater Chamber of Commerce! It is a great avenue for networking and making connections with other local business owners, potential clients, and key decision-makers in the community, plus it drives our city's economic development and advocates for local business growth and retention!"

Kendra Burtrum, Stan Clark Companies

"My membership and participation in Chamber events has opened doors that I would have never had opened. The programs offered have given me knowledge and insight into how to be the best business person I can be. Our membership also introduces our business to others and gives us opportunities to support our community with economic growth and business development."

Terri Collier, BancFirst

"Being a Chamber member has allowed me the opportunity to meet and work with professionals across all spectrums of business. I had no idea there was such a fantastic business community in Stillwater!"

Austin Pollard, RCB Bank

"I value being a chamber member because I love Stillwater and I want to see Stillwater be the best community that it can be. If I have the ability to contribute to that in any way I am going to
be there. As a citizen I see that as my civic duty."

Jim Rutledge, Community Investor
