Chamber accepting applications for local business awards

Augusta is home to a long list of great entrepreneurs and corporations, but the Augusta Metro Chamber of Commerce wants to narrow that list down to two.

The Chamber is currently accepting applications for its 2021 Best in Business awards: Augusta’s Entrepreneur and Corporation of the Year. “Our members consistently share with us that recognition of outstanding businesses in our community is important to our continued economic growth,” says Sue Parr, the Chamber’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We have great stories to tell and our annual Best in Business awards program is an excellent way to raise awareness of companies we are proud and honored to have in our region.” Presented by SouthState Bank, Augusta’s Entrepreneur award will go to a local small business leader who both excels in business and gives back to the community. To be eligible, an entrepreneur must be an active participant in a business’s operations as an owner, partner, or major shareholder; the business must be a Chamber member when the award is presented; and it must be financially stable and operational for a minimum of 12 months.

The winner will be recognized at the Member Economic Luncheon on Dec. 8, entered for a chance to win the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Dream Big Small Business Award, and appointed to the Chamber’s board of directors for one year. The Corporation of the Year award will be presented to a successful local company that has made a significant impact on the CSRA.


The deadline to apply for either award is Friday, Nov. 19. For more information or to submit your application, click on this link:
