A Call for Nominees

2018 has been a big year for our Chamber and even more for our members. As usual, our year started with the Annual Dinner, A Night at the Movies where we highlighted businesses and individuals for their hard work and commitment to Wayne County. We have had over 18 ribbon cuttings, with more to come, we’ve become official Google partners, providing workshops to our members, and we celebrated over 16 nominees with new or updated buildings at the Community Improvement Awards. The Taste of Wayne County/Business Expo saw a large number of businesses and nonprofits taking part, all while enjoying food from 11 restaurants. Our annual Farm Tour, at the Walther’s Farm, saw nearly 200 people attend and our golf tournament was the largest yet. Besides our big events, we hosted opportunities for all to connect with their peers, through educational presentations and networking events.

Whether you attended all or none of these events, please know that your Chamber, Board and volunteers were hard at work representing you and making Wayne County a better place to live, work and play.

Mark your calendars for January 18, 2019 when we will host the next Annual Dinner. It will be another “can’t miss” year, with new surprises! We are attaching the nomination information and form for the 2018 awards that will be presented at the Annual Dinner. Please take a few minutes to consider those in our community who have earned special recognition for their impact. A list of past winners is also included. Then, submit your nominations to Roxie@WCAreaChamber.org or mail them to 33 South 7th Street, Richmond, IN 47374 by November 15th.

Thank you for your continued membership and contributions to our great community. We look forward to working together with you into the coming year.
