This Is the Final Week for 40 Under Forty Nominations

SPRINGFIELDBusinessWest magazine, the sister publication of HCN, will accept nominations for the 40 Under Forty Class of 2016 — the 10th class to be honored by the magazine — through the end of the work day (5 p.m.) on Friday, Feb 12.

The annual program recognizes rising stars within the Western Mass. community, which includes Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden, and Hampshire counties. This year’s group of 40 will be profiled in the magazine’s April 18 edition, then toasted at the June 16 gala at the Log Cabin Banquet & Meeting House in Holyoke.

The nomination form, which can be found at, requests basic information and can be supported with other material, such as a résumé, testimonials, and even press clippings highlighting an individual’s achievements in their profession or service to their community.
