Chamber celebrates individuals and businesses that make a difference
Nominations are open for Beaufort-area community leaders who made a difference in 2011 as the Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce opened the application process for the 11th Annual Civitas Awards.
The deadline for nominations is Friday, May 4. Winners will be celebrated at the Chamber’s Annual Meeting June 29 at Dataw Island.
“Each year the Beaufort Regional Chamber of Commerce celebrates individuals and organizations that have made a positive impact on our community. We have a wonderful tradition that we look to build upon with this year’s nominees and winners,” said Blakely Williams, president of the Beaufort Chamber.
The Civitas program is in line with the chamber’s mission to lead the enhancement, expansion and diversification of the business community. The awards cover a wide scope of excellence in the community.
Nomination forms are available at www.beaufortchamber.org and at the Chamber offices and Visitors Center, both on Craven Street. Last year there were 55 nominees in 12 categories.
“This is such a great way to recognize the people and groups who make northern Beaufort County so special. We hope to have even more nominees this year because there have been so many positive things happening in our community,” said Jon Rembold, chairman of the Beaufort Regional Chamber Board of Directors.
