Businesses in our region and around the world, no matter their size, are facing the greatest challenge in this generation. As we work to reopen and look beyond COVID-19, we strive to build and maintain resiliency in our small businesses, who employ the majority of our workforce. We invite you to join us in providing resources and tools for businesses to reconnect and work together at our [Virtual] Small Business Awards. 


We will learn how our members and community are working to rebuild and how they are overcoming the challenges the pandemic presents. Through a new Small Business Scholarship program, the Chamber will be awarding 4 Bronze-level Chamber membership renewals to current Chamber members who can demonstrate a need for financial assistance. Based on nominations and applications, three members will also be recognized for their outstanding achievements in the following categories: Community Minded, Creative Pivot, and 2020 Success Story.
