2020 BN360 Spotlight Professional Nominations Now Open

Each year, BN360, the young professional development and engagement program of the Buffalo Niagara Partnership, seeks nominations to recognize up-and-coming young people in Buffalo Niagara as Spotlight Professionals. Nominations are now open and will be accepted through Friday, October 11.

Spotlight Professionals are young people (generally between the ages of 21 and 40) who are passionate about, and dedicated to, the Buffalo Niagara region. Spotlights live and work in Buffalo Niagara. They are passionate about their community and use their time and unique talents to make positive impacts both personally and professionally. Spotlights are hard workers, professionally motivated, and deserve to be recognized for all that they do!

Anyone can be nominated as a Spotlight Professional, whether you work in the private or public sector, and whether you’re an employee, an entrepreneur, or a volunteer. BN360 wants to shine a light on our region’s young professionals, who hold positions like teacher, technician, doctor, fabricator, mechanic, lawyer, marketer, processor, engineer, and more.

Check out BN360’s 12 incredible 2019 Spotlight Professionals, from Fulbright Scholar Paige Melin and IT entrepreneur Jeff Rathmann to Talisa King, who created a community of support for those with rheumatoid arthritis.

If you know someone who is hardworking and dedicated to Buffalo Niagara, nominate them today! 12 Spotlight Professionals will be selected and announced at BN360’s 2020 kickoff party in January. Each chosen Spotlight will be honored monthlong recognition during 2020.
