Small Business Excellence Awards

Each fall, the Chamber hosts this black-tie networking dinner to honor companies that stand out within the small business community. Members of the Chamber's Small Business Board and a volunteer committee play a major role in helping our staff to determine the winners and promoting the event.

Supplier Network Series

The Supplier Network series connects small business owners and executives with the region's foremost procurement officers. By enhancing their marketability and developing their business strategies, the current Supplier Network businesses have bolstered their qualifications to compete for contracts with the region's larger companies. The educational and networking series is seeing tangible results as more and more small companies — including woman-owned, minority-owned, and veteran-owned — are gaining direct business connection to the procurement executives and learning the secrets of securing contracts with large regional companies and government agencies.
