FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Oct. 30, 2012 - The Flagler County Chamber of Commerce & Affiliates is seeking nominations for its 2012 Member Awards. Winners will be honored at the organization’s annual Installation Celebration, Jan. 25 at the Hammock Beach Resort.

According to Executive Vice President Rebecca DeLorenzo, the Chamber honors members and affiliates who go “above and beyond” as chamber members and volunteers.

“The annual awards competition is much more than a popularity contest,” she said. “It’s an opportunity to say thank you for a job well done or for truly making a difference. All members are encouraged to nominate other members that give back in some way, whether it’s hosting a fundraiser, supporting a cause or providing outstanding customer service. And, since many members routinely go the extra miles for their customers, our biggest challenge will be selecting winners for each category.”

The 2012 Chamber Awards follows a self-nomination process, meaning the individual or company wishing to receive the award should complete and submit one nomination form for each category before the November 30 deadline. Winners will be selected by the Chamber’s Executive board.

Both individuals and businesses are eligible for nomination.  Each of the Chamber’s four affiliate board (Palm Coast, Bunnell, Flagler Beach and Young Professionals Group of Flagler County) will help select their “Business Person of the Year.”  Nominations for these individual awards will be evaluated using the following criteria:

·         Participation… These individuals volunteer beyond their normal commitment to the chamber, i.e., including working on special events or chairing committees. Attendance at events will also be considered.

·         Investment… Individuals support the Chamber through event and corporate sponsorships.

·         Leads... Individuals actively promote the Chamber and are responsible for bringing in new members.

·         Does business with other members… Individuals who look to do business with other members first.  

·         Contribution… Individuals who seek make a positive impact on the local economy.

·         Reliability… Individuals who are there when called upon and willing to contribute resources and services when the Chamber is in need.
