Annual Awards Gala
The Annual Awards Gala is our premier event where we reflect on the previous year, recognize the Chamber’s outgoing Chairman of the Board, and honor our annual award recipients. This semi-formal event recognizes the Business of the Year, Nonprofit of the Year, Community Leader of the Year, Young Professional of the Year, Business Leader of the Year, Ambassador or Volunteer of the Year, and other community awards. Attendees also enjoy entertainment and a silent auction. It is an excellent chance to have an elegant evening and build networks.
The event is designed to demonstrate the progress of the Chamber and Chamber Foundation, present awards to outstanding community and business leaders, and to provide a social atmosphere for networking.
Every member of the Chamber and public is invited. Also, invited to attend are Mayor and City Council, County Commissioners, local delegation, Board of Education members, other representatives of the local government and school system, and many of our community’s top employers.

Congratulations to our 2021 Annual Awards Winners!
Each year we recognize organizations and individuals who have displayed outstanding leadership throughout 2021 in our annual Awards ceremony. Nominations were open to the public in November and December of 2021 then each nomination was presented to our nominating committee formed by the 2020 annual awards winners. The committee participated in a blind vote on each category to select the 2021 Annual Awards winners.
Thank you to our Annual Awards Sponsor, Cox Business!
