For more than 20 years, your chamber has honored from its ranks an  Entrepreneur of the Year to recognize their value-added contributions to our community and economy. In 2015, two new businesses were honored with the  Corporate Citizenship Award and  Legacy Award.

Nominations for these awards are from the membership and Chamber Awards Committee. To nominate a fellow chamber member or yourself for any of these prestigious awards, please complete the form below. When finished, hit the submit button only once. Nominations must be received by no later than  4 PM Friday, February 3, 2017, to be considered.

The selection committee retains nominations for the last couple of years. The committee considers all retained nominations along with current nominations. We also encourage updates to previous nominations. A committee composed of past recipients and chamber board members will review all nominations. The final selection will be announced at the chamber's Annual Meeting Dinner on Tuesday, March 7, 2017.

Should you have any questions or want to double-check that we received the nomination, give us a call at 740.702-2722.
