Chamber Choice Awards Banquet

 

We love recognizing people for their hard work. 

That's why we created the Chamber Choice Awards Banquet. Each year, the Perham Area Chamber of Commerce puts together the banquet to recognize businesses and individuals who have done great things in and for our community. 

Nominations for the Chamber Choice Hall of Fame, Leadership, and Volunteer Awards are submitted by the public in January. Recipients are selected for awards by a committee, and the public is invited to a banquet honoring these award winners.

The banquet is typically held in April. Cost is $25, and includes a sit-down dinner. Pre-registration is encouraged to help make the evening run smoothly. If you do not wish to attend the dinner, the doors will be opened for free admission after the meal. 

Contact the Perham Area Chamber of Commerce at (218) 346-7710 to register.
