The Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce accepts nominations for its annual Business of the Year, Non-Profit of the Year and Citizen of the Year Awards from November 1 to February 20.
The 2018 Business of the Year award recognizes a Chamber member business in good standing that has demonstrated excellence in their business and has made substantial contributions to its industry and the Rochester area.
The 2018 Non-Profit of the Year award recognizes an organization that has made a sustainable impact in the Rochester community.
The 2018 Citizen of the Year Award is presented to an adult resident of the Greater Rochester area who has made substantial contributions to the community as a whole. Activities should be over and above the normal duties of one's paid position and need not be confined to a single year. Activities do need to be recent enough to have current significance. Lifetime achievement may be considered as a separate award.
These prestigious awards are announced and presented at the Chamber’s Annual Dinner & Awards Banquet held in April. Recipients are provided with an award at this event and are then announced in the Chamber newsletter and E-blasts and in the media. Recipients are also recognized on the Chamber website and at events throughout the year and are asked to appear in the Rochester Holiday Parade, produced annually by the Chamber.
Nominations must include the name and address of the business, organization or individual being nominated, distinguished activities for which the business, organization or individual is being nominated, including supporting documentation, along with contact information of the individual or organization submitting the nomination. The deadline for nominations to be submitted is February 20, 2018. Nomination forms are to be sent to the Awards Committee, Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce, 18 South Main Street, Rochester, NH 03867 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
