Annual Meeting & Business Award Nominations

The Iowa Great Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Meeting is going to look a lot different this year. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Iowa Great Lakes Area Chamber has decided to switch their Annual Meeting to an entirely virtual format. This FREE virtual event will highlight the many successes that the Iowa Great Lakes Area Chamber and its members had over the last year and will be featured on their Facebook page early December.

Twenty-twenty brought its challenges to our local business community and the Iowa Great Lakes Area Chamber, but there are many successes that we would still like to celebrate. An entirely new aspect to the event has been created for the 2020 Annual Meeting to highlight local businesses who went above and beyond in the last year. The Chamber is seeking nominations for the following awards: Large Business of the Year, Small Business of the Year, Social Media Superstar, and Member of the Year. Nominees must be current Iowa Great Lakes Area Chamber members. Nominations will be open on the Chamber website from Wednesday, October 21st to Friday, October 30th and voting will be open from Sunday, November 1st to Sunday, November 8th.
