The awards presented celebrate individuals in their efforts to impact the community and businesses that stand out in their operations as well as their efforts to take care of individuals in this and other communities. Each award has a different purpose and meaning and will recognize a deserving individual or business that continues to stand out. Every category has multiple nominees. Nominations and voting for each category are completed by our Ambassadors, and one of the awards is nominated and voted on by our Tourism Council. Another award receives nominations and then voting directly from our current Board of Directors.
Each of the nominees were winners of the Business of the Quarter throughout the fiscal year. Each quarter our Ambassadors nominate businesses that have shown high volumes of community and Chamber involvement in a variety of ways. Many times, the businesses nominated for this award have volunteered many hours to local events or causes, they have donated funds or products, they have invested personally or monetarily into their business and the community, they continue to grow their business, even through difficult times, and find ways to support tourism and bringing people to our community. Businesses are broken into 3 different categories based on their employee counts, Small, Mid-Sized, and Large.
