The Washington Area Chamber of Commerce will hold its Member Luncheon Monday, Sept. 24, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Washington Knights of Columbus, upper level.

The Outstanding Young Professionals (OYP) Class of the 2018 will be honored.

The awards are sponsored by the Chamber and The Missourian.

This is the sixth year for the awards, according to Amanda Griesheimer, Chamber marketing director.

“Together, the Chamber and Missourian will recognize the up-and-coming generation of area leaders,” said Griesheimer. “The nominees are usually nominated by co-workers or supervisors, but we have had people nominated by customers as well.”

Griesheimer said there have been 60 recipients of the OYP award since starting the program in 2013.

Those selected to receive awards will be notified to ensure attendance at the luncheon.

The luncheon is open to all Chamber members. The cost is $12 per person.

Reservations should be made by Sept. 14 by calling 636-239-2715, ext. 102, or emailing
