2022 Donna Dallesasse Award - Nominations Needed!

The Batavia Chamber of Commerce is honored to award one outstanding Chamber member with the Donna Dallesasse Award each year at Harvest Celebration. The Donna Dallesasse Award is given annually to recognize an individual Chamber member in good standing for outstanding commitment and dedication to the Chamber’s mission, vision, and values. Like Donna, this person exhibits great love for our community and the Chamber.

Potential awardees will be nominated by Chamber members in good standing. Nominations can be mailed to the Chamber office, or emailed to by Monday, Aug. 15, stating the reasons why the individual being nominated is worthy of this honor. The nominations will be recommended to the Board by the Nominations Committee, with final determination by Board vote. Members of the Chamber’s Board of Directors and Nominations Committee are not eligible. A list of previous winners are available on our website.
