Event honors top businessperson of the year

January 4, 2019 by  

The Business Person of the Year award dinner is taking place next month in Lafayette. It is a presentation of the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce, and is one of its signature events.

This year, the Chamber has chosen Terry Ring of Ring Construction to receive the award. This is due to his various volunteer and community activities, as well as business success. In addition, Mr. Ring is the incoming president of the Lafayette Rotary Club, and is in particular known for his work with the Art & Wine Festival.

Mayor Cam Burks will also be giving his first State of the City address. He will be discussing the past year’s accomplishments as well, and describing what he has planned for the upcoming year. It is likely his speech will focus on business and how it will affect local companies.

This is an important networking event for both Chamber and non-Chamber business leaders in the Lafayette area. No doubt some of the individuals planning to attend will be putting in a new business card order with a local printing company.

The annual event will be held at the Lafayette Park Hotel and Spa on Friday, February 1, taking place from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. For more information, such as the price of tickets, get in touch with the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce at 925-284-7404.
