Each June we hold the Awards and Installation Banquet. This is a yearly celebration of our business community, induction of our Board of Directors and celebrating the success of the Chamber.
Peers will nominate others for awards that are gifted this night. Through a selection process, a committee will review the nomination forms and select one winner for each of our categories. Although some of these winners must be active Chamber members, two awards are gifted to any community leader who resides or works in Clackamas County.
Nominations are typically required by May 15th.
Nominations are being accepted now through May 15th for this year’s event.
