Member of the Month - Criteria & Nomination
The Charlevoix Area Chamber of Commerce is soliciting nominations for the prestigious Member of the Month Award! This award is presented the first week of each month and is offered only to current members of the Charlevoix Area Chamber of Commerce. Annually, the Business of the Year is chosen from the twelve monthly winners. To make a nomination please email your nominee to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 231-547-2101.
Deadline for nominations is the 12th of each Month. Nominations are verified by the Charlevoix Area Chamber President and staff. Once nominations have been verified, the Charlevoix Area Chamber Ambassador Committee will then determine the selected Member of the Month.
The selected member will be contacted on or around the 15th of each month.
That member will be interviewed and have a photo taken on the last week of the month.
To be nominated as 'Member of the Month', the business owner/employees should do more than open the doors for their type of business.
