The purpose of the “Greater Good Awards” is to celebrate outstanding individuals and businesses for the contributions they make to the quality of life and economic stability of our region through genuine community commitment, dedication to excellence, and ethical and creative business practices.
We invite our Chamber membership to participate in the process by nominating an outstanding business or individual to be considered for an award. You may make a nomination by simply completing the information below. Completed forms must be received no later than Friday, December 14th.
The criteria by which the nominees will be judged are community involvement, ethics and character, leadership, creativity, economic impact, and growth. Each organization should have been in business in this community for a minimum of 3 years and be a member of the Top of Virginia Regional Chamber. Each individual must have resided in the Top of Virginia region for a minimum of three years and be at least 21 years of age.
Award winners are chosen by an impartial committee of past Chamber board chairs based on the criteria indicated.
