Nominations for Outstanding Civic Service and Business Impact Awards are Due March 1st

What is the Business Impact Award?
Every year the Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce recognizes one or two companies for development (growth/expansion) and/or business diversification. The purpose of the 
Business Impact Award is to recognize and promote our community’s culture of innovation, entrepreneurialism, resiliency, and to celebrate business success in our community.

What is the Outstanding Civic Service Award?
Every year the Greater Iberia Chamber of Commerce (GICC) presents an “Outstanding Civic Service” Award to a member of our community who has shown exemplary service by volunteering their time and energy to Iberia Parish. We know there are many local residents who generously contribute their time to local civic projects, to our schools, to various charities and churches. The “Civic Service Award” is our way to honor and thank these very special people for their commitment to our community and to inspire others to make volunteering a part of their lives. 
Your Chamber is partnering with the Louisiana Small Business Development Center to bring you this series of webinars in 2021, that are aimed to help you grow or start your business. Attendance is limited for these sessions so make sure to sign up ahead of time!
