Chamber Champion

The Sylvania Chamber has so many great businesses, community organizations, business leaders and volunteers who work tirelessly to insure that their business or community organization has outstanding leadership. Often we forget to take time to recognize these members who make the Sylvania Area the tremendous place it is.

The Sylvania Area Chamber of Commerce hosts annually the Sylvania Area Chamber Business Champions Hall of Fame. The best thing about the “Sylvania Chamber Champion’s Award” is that the nominations come from our members who nominate the candidates. The categories are: Small Business Champion – under 10 associates, Business Champion of the Year – over 10 associates, Retail Business Champion of the Year, Business Leader Champion of the Year – , Non-Profit Organization Champion and the Chamber Volunteer Champion.

A Chamber committee meets every January and evaluates each of the nominees from the list of candidates presented. The Chamber Champions are announced the Friday before the Showcase Sylvania Expo.
