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.

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.

Join Top of Virginia Regional Chamber members at the annual Greater Good Awards, presented by Valley Health to celebrate the local business community.  We plan to recognize the award nominees in high style as we announce the winners of the Hollie Awards named for the first Chamber president, Hollie B. McCormac.

Highlights of the evening will include a networking cocktail hour, dinner, silent auction, 50/50 raffle, and presentation of the Greater Good Awards.
