Small Business Awards of Excellence Top Chamber Event

ALL Members Encouraged to Attend!

One of the most popular and well-received events of the Chamber year is the annual Small Business Awards of Excellence. While this luncheon, which will be held this year on Tuesday, April 24 at 11:30 a.m. at First Presbyterian Church, is designed to honor seven of the best small businesses (<50 employees) in the Chamber, it is open to ALL Chamber members to attend.

Small businesses are the backbone of the Chamber. Over 85% of our member businesses fit into this category and small businesses contribute to the Chamber is so many ways—paying their investments, providing volunteers to serve on committees, sponsoring events, hosting Lunch & Learn workshops and generally being involved in everything the Chamber does throughout the year.

Because of this, the Small Business Awards of Excellence Committee is encouraging ALL members of the Chamber to make plans to join them for a delicious lunch and the awards ceremony. Tickets are only $22 per person and can be purchased by calling the Chamber office, 423-586-6382. It would be great to fill the banquet hall to say “thank you” to these businesses.

Awards will be presented in 5 “business type” categories as well as the Horizon Award to a business 5 years old or newer and the prestigious Small Business of the Year to the business who received the top score from the judges.

More information on the nominees, sponsors and event can be found in the flyer on page 4 of this Morristimes.
