North Central Chamber to honor stars in the making

April 28, 2013 by  

The Night of the Rising Stars, which is presented by the North Central Chamber of Commerce and honors local business leaders, is taking place in a couple of weeks in Mapleville.

This annual chamber event consists of a cocktail and networking reception, guest speakers, dinner, and business awards. There are four awards in all that honor chamber members and their businesses, and there will be plenty of chances to discuss business with peers over dinner and to make contact with those who receive the awards, perhaps even gleaning some advice from those who have been recognized.

The awards presented are the Community Services Award, the Rising Star Award (for companies that have been in business for under four years), Ambassador of the Year Award (for most helpful chamber member), and Small Business of the Year. Up to five $500 scholarships will also be handed out to deserving high-school seniors.

The event should be a great networking opportunity for businesspersons from the area, including Johnston, home of the chamber. Many will no doubt be placing a new business card printing order in advance to ensure that their contact information is relevant and accurate, and that they have enough cards to exchange with whomever they meet.

The Night of the Rising Stars will take place at the Crystal Lake Golf Club on May 14 from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm. For more information, such as ticket prices for this year, contact Kelly Patz at 401-349-4674.
