Community and Business

Achievement Awards

2023 Nominations are now open!

The Annual Business & Community Achievement Awards Gala is that special time of year when we recognize the prominent people and organizations in our community that are helping us thrive. 

We ask that you take a few minutes to nominate businesses or individuals from our community who have made a difference for you and deserve to be recognized.  

The deadline to submit nominations is September 30, 2023! 


We also encourage businesses to ask their customers/clients to nominate them for an award.  To help make this easier we’ve created a poster for local businesses to use. 

If you need any assistance with a nomination, please reach out to us – we are happy to help!
