29th Annual Women of Excellence

Monday, October 19, 2020 (11:30 AM - 12:30 PM) (EDT)


Presented by the Women’s Business Council 

Now in its 29th year, the Women of Excellence Awards honors a select group of women for their success in business and their contributions to the community. Six women who have achieved success in their professional careers and dedicated themselves to community service will join the prestigious ranks of the Chamber's Women of Excellence on Monday, October 19. 

Since we are unable to gather as a large group, the event will be hybrid. This means, we will live stream the event and with the exception of sponsors and recipients, attendees will be able to celebrate with them virtually. 

Virtual attendees will receive a link to join the event on Friday, October 16.

Awards Program - 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
