Media invited to Chamber’s annual Small Business Awards Celebration Thursday
What: The Chamber’s annual Small Business Awards Celebration event recognizes the contributions of small business to the local and national economies and honors business leaders in our community. Approximately two of every three new jobs created in our economy are created by small businesses, and more nearly 80 percent of the Chamber’s members are small businesses.

The three awards are the Baker-Cook-Jones Small Business Person of the Year, the Lynn C. Fowler Non-Profit Professional of the Year and the Arthur Orr Young Professional of the Year. Each award will be presented Thursday. Also, milestone years of area businesses will be highlighted during the ceremony along with the graduation of the Chamber’s Excellence in Leadership program.
