Help Celebrate the North Central Chamber of Commerce
April 27, 2012 by Mark
The annual Night of the Rising Stars annual dinner and celebration will take place at Crystal Lake Golf Club in Mapleville on May 21 This year’s event is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the North Central Chamber of Commerce.
There will be several awards handed out throughout the evening; nominees are all chamber members and were chosen by their business peers. The “Rising Star” awards are:
• Community Service Award – “based on their community involvement and community support throughout the year”
• Rising Star Award – a new company that has increased business over the past three years
• Ambassador of the Year – the person who has done the most to help increase the chamber’s membership
• Small Business of the Year – due to “their growth in revenue/sales and staff products/services and also their community support”
Five scholarship awards will also be handed out to high school seniors to help them further their education.
This will also be an excellent networking event for businesses all over the area including Johnston. Arranging for a business card printing order in advance is definitely recommended for those who plan to attend this annual event. Practicing an “elevator speech” will also come in handy since there is only so much time to spend with each person; each business person should be able to succinctly describe what they can do for their peers. There will also be the chance to interact with the award winners and to learn from their example and to meet the high school students who will be the future business leaders of tomorrow.
