  A Message from the President
Recently, the Macon Economic Development Commission and the Greater Macon Chamber of Commerce hosted its annual Business and Industry Awards Luncheon, A Salute to Business. It was a great event where local businesses were recognized for their contributions to our community. It was a pleasure to award Tommy's Bakery and CafĂ© the Startup of the Year Award, ASP Franchising, LLC the Small Business of the Year Award and ESG Operations the Business of the Year Award. Andrew Eck was awarded the Outstanding Young Business Leader Award. The awards were chosen based on rigorous criteria. I would like to congratulate the nominees, finalists and recipients on their success, as well as thank them for the impact they've made to Macon's business community. 

I invite you to attend the Chamber's upcoming Annual Meeting on December 7 at Middle Georgia State College. This meeting will focus on spotlighting the accomplishments of 2017, announcing the goals for 2018 and recognizing civic leaders for their outstanding service to the community.

In closing, I encourage you to mark your calendar for Small Business Saturday on November 25. Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting small businesses across the country. As the voice of the business community, the Chamber supports organizations of all sizes and we encourage you to "shop small" this month to help grow Macon's local economy.
