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 are created small businesses, nearly 60 million Americans work for a small business, and nearly 80 percent of the Chamber’s members fall into that category.

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.
