Thua G Barlay photoThe Conyers-Rockdale Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that one of its Board of Governors, Thua G. Barlay, has the unique privilege of being an honoree of two major publications recognizing 40 individuals under the age of 40.

Earlier this month, and for the 18th year, Georgia Trend recognized a group of 40 outstanding Georgians under the age of 40 – “Georgia’s Best and Brightest.” The honorees represent business, government, politics, nonprofits, science, conservation and education. The 40 were chosen from over 400 nominations made by readers throughout the state. Final selections were made by the Georgia Trend editorial staff.

In addition, next month, The Atlanta Business Chronicle will spotlight the next generation of Atlanta business leaders – 40 people under age 40 who make significant career achievements and have demonstrated social responsibility – “Atlanta’s Rising Business & Community Leaders.” The 40 were chosen from over 600 nominations from the Metro-Atlanta region. The nominations were reviewed by previous 40 Under 40 honorees and final selections were made by the Atlanta Business Chronicle editorial staff. The 2014 40 Under 40 Awards winners will be profiled in the chronicle’s November 14, 2014 issue.

We are appreciative of the work that Thua has done with the Chamber and within the community and wanted to share this recognition.
