Celebrate the Past and Look Forward to the Future
January 22, 2016
At the Annual Meeting, each year, we celebrate the many successes of the past year and preview our plan of action for the coming year, as we swear in the new Board of Directors and announce the Chairman’s Cup Recipient and Ambassador of the Year.
Each year, the Brenda Dozier Hollis Chairman’s Cup is awarded to recipients for their efforts, hard work and dedication to the community. Brenda was dedicated to the Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce and served as an advocate for getting new leaders and younger people involved with the Chamber. These honorees work tirelessly to grow the Chamber and its programs to truly represent and engage our dynamic business community. Join us at the Annual Meeting to see who is awarded!
Annually, the Chamber Ambassadors, volunteers who act as representatives of the Chamber, work vigorously to enhance member relations. Through their active role and participation in ribbon cuttings, ground breakings and events, the Chamber is able to better serve our membership. Some Ambassadors go above and beyond what is expected, well representing their business and the Chamber in the community. Who will be named this year’s Ambassador of the Year?
