One can expect to gain a deeper awareness into how to de-stress, reclaim a proper work-life balance and live the life they are imagining through Keith’s five step framework towards a more mindful and fulfilling life.

Special Announcement!

Business Awards changes…

The Chamber would like to announce that we have made some changes to the Best Business Awards. We’re excited about the changes and we hope you will be too.

First off, we’ve changed the name to the Business Awards Celebration.

We’re moving the Volunteer Awards out of the Business Awards celebration evening and we will be having a separate celebration during Volunteer Week in April of 2019 to hand out the Volunteer Awards. This will be a lunch celebration and we hope to get more non-profits involved in the nomination process and make it all about our great volunteers.

In the past we’ve also had 6 business awards. We’ve narrowed those down to 4 awards. They are now:

Outstanding Business of the Year (instead of Outstanding Small and Outstanding Medium)

Outstanding contribution to the Community by a Business

*Outstanding New Entrepreneur of the Year (*new)

Outstanding Not-for-Profit Organization

Our hope is that we will get a lot more nominations and this will give us a chance to focus more on the nominees and the winners.

We are now accepting nominations for the Business Awards! Deadline for nominations, Friday, October 5th.

Business Nomination Form 2018 (1)

 There are still lots of great Sponsorship opportunities available. Email Cindy at the Chamber for more details or click here.
