30th Annual Women of Excellence

Friday, May 21, 2021 (11:30 AM - 12:30 PM) (EDT)


Presented by the Women’s Business Council 

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. 

Since we are still 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 Thursday, May 20.

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