Annual Dinner and Awards Celebration

The Annual Dinner and Awards Celebration serves as our Chamber's annual meeting. It provides us with an opportunity to network with fellow Chamber members, recognize our outgoing Chamber Board Chairperson and members, award the annual Ron Wipfli "Person-of-the-Year" award, Michigan Works! “Business-of-the-Year”, Wave "Young Professional-of-the-Year", salute our local educators and acknowledge economic development achievements. The City of Menominee also presents its annual Community Service awards during the program.

The evening event begins with a pre-dinner wine tasting sponsored by Jack’s Fresh Market, followed by dinner and the awards ceremony. The event most certainly is a celebration of all the positive things happening in our region and in our business community.
