Now in its 30th 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 Friday, May 21.

*If you would like to attend in-person, please select that option during checkout.

Virtual attendees will receive a link to join the event on Thursday, May 20.

In-person timing: 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
*lunch will be served immediately following the program
Awards Program/virtual timing: 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
