The SouthCoast Emerging Leaders awards is a partnership of SouthCoast Media Group, Leadership SouthCoast, Charlton College of Business at UMass Dartmouth, and the New Bedford Area Chamber of Commerce and its SouthCoast Young Professionals Network.
Five SouthCoast Emerging Leader awards will be given in 2017 to professionals who demonstrate leadership talent and skill and a commitment to creating a better SouthCoast community.
Nominations were solicited from the community and winners were chosen by a selection committee made up of representatives from each of the partner organizations.
The Jacobs Leadership Award will also be presented at this event to the 2017 award recipient Tony Sapienza, CEO of Joseph Abboud.
* Complimentary hors d'oeuvres and cash bar will be available.
