The Salem-Roanoke County Chamber of Commerce recognizes a small and large business of the year in Salem and Roanoke County at our Annual Meeting and Awards Breakfast. The Annual Meeting and Awards Breakfast is our Chamber’s most celebrated event. We honor our local heroes, community members, and winners of our small and large business of the year awards. The event sold out in 2020 with record attendance.
These businesses demonstrate an interest and involvement with the general community through support of area not-for-profits, community causes, business development activities and/or volunteering. They are in alignment with Chamber values by actively supporting the advancement of business in the community as well as active participation in the Chamber.
In addition, the Chamber recognizes a Citizen of the Year. This award goes to an individual, group of people or an entity. The recipient will have demonstrated interest and involvement in the regional community through support of area not-for-profits, community causes, business development activities and/or volunteering. The Citizen of the Year is someone or a group that has developed creative ways to help solve a community challenge. Chamber membership is not required to be eligible.
We invite you to submit your nominations for these awards between September 1st and September 30th. Final winner will be determined by the Salem-Roanoke County Chamber Annual Meeting Committee.
