Our annual Business Awards of Excellence are a way of recognizing the amazing contributions of Chamber Members to our community.
Although we hold the Gala in early April every year, the event actually kicks off in the late fall of each year with the opening of Awards Nominations. After nominations close on December 31 and we’ve received confirmations from our nominees, a panel of objective judges from among our Membership spends weeks scrutinizing and weighing the information in the nomination packages. The winners are kept secret until the Gala event, when our Members get together to celebrate the excellence and success of their peers and inspire one another by example.
