The Chamber will host its Annual Award Luncheon on Thursday, February 18th at Pathway Church. Three businesses will be named as the Chamber’s STAR Small Businesses of the Year, and Chamber and community leaders will be honored for their volunteerism and service with the Chamber’s Legacy awards.
Attendees will be entertained and enlightened by our Keynote Speaker Craig Couch with Couch & Russell Financial Group. Craig, an accomplished and humorous presenter who also serves as the Chamber’s Board of Directors Vice Chair, will present “Leaving Your Mark.”
In its fourth year, the STAR Small Business of the Year recipients come from unique business areas, but share a common trait: a commitment to entrepreneurial, marketing and management excellence. The three categories are Rising Star (in Business 3 Years or Less); Shooting Star (1 – 10 Employees); and Shining Star (11 – 50 Employees).
The Chamber’s Legacy awards include the ATHENA Leadership Award, recognizing a local woman who exemplifies professionalism and leadership in our community. The Non-Profit of the Year recognizes a local non-profit whose efforts deserve recognition for the good they perform for residents and the city. The Chamber Volunteer of the Year recognizes an individual who has diligently served the Chamber by fulfilling leadership roles, volunteering at events and provides support through faithful attendance at Chamber events. The Citizen of the Year recognizes an individual who is a community leader whose efforts have brought a significant improvement to our city.
The Awards luncheon also recognizes those individuals who support our organization through their work with the Ambassadors, Diplomats and Power of Heels.
“Our Awards Luncheon is one of the most enjoyable events we host each year,” says Sherri Sechrist, president of the Burleson Chamber. “First, we are always excited to recognize our Chamber members who demonstrate their commitment to our organization through their volunteerism and service. It’s exciting to recognize our members who exemplify the best of small business practices in our community. And finally, as in years past, we look forward to a stellar keynote presentation from Craig Couch that promises to be humorous and enlightening. It’s an event every Chamber member should attend.” Click Here to RSVP
