Each year, the Branson/Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce is honored to highlight one local small business and one non-profit organization at the Small Business and Charity of the Year Awards Dinner based on nominations from Chamber members.  In addition to the Small Business Award and Charity Award, the addition of the Ozark Mountain Hospitality Award will be presented this year to a business that shows exceptional customer service through their staff associates. 

 

This year, the awards dinner will begin at 5:30pm. on Thursday, Sept 25th at Chateau on the Lake Resort & Spa.  "Everyone knows a small business or charity that are successful and it's up to our members to help us recognize them by nominating their favorite small business and charity," says Julie Bolton, Executive Director for the Branson/Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce.

The Small Business Awards have been presented since 1999. The Charity of the Year award was added in 2009. The nomination forms will be rated by a panel of at least four judges. To receive the non-profit award, the organization must be designated as a Section 501(c)3. Only Chamber members may make a nomination, but the nominee does not have to be a member. For any of these awards, the recipient must be located in Taney or Stone counties. Anonymous or self-nominations will not be accepted.
