The Chamber Bright Stars for 2018 will be recognized on Thursday, October 25th at the semi-annual Chamber Leadership meeting and eleventh annual Chamber Bright Star Awards presentation of the Northern Ohio Area Chambers of Commerce (NOACC) at the new entertainment complex, PINSTRIPES in Pinecrest in Orange, Ohio .
About 40 chambers of commerce across northern Ohio nominated a person from their chamber as their “Bright Star,” to recognize a chamber member who has “made a significant impact on the chamber through membership, retention, sponsorship, economic development, operations and/or education.” Each Bright Star is an active chamber member for no less than two years and is likely to be an unsung hero or a dedicated behind-the-scenes volunteer.
These volunteers represent a wide range of involvement with their respective chambers, some having been a member and or officer or committee chairman for 20+ years and some being newly involved but each of whom has given freely of his/her time, working hard for their chambers without any expectations.
This is the eleventh year for the Chamber Bright Star Awards, and again is giving an opportunity to recognize these volunteers among their peer groups, as chamber representatives, board members and spouses will also be in attendance.
Cindy Caldwell, NOACC Executive Director said “All chambers depend on the help and support they receive from every volunteer, from the smallest to the largest effort and everything in between. We need our volunteers and we welcome the opportunity to appreciate them at this annual festive occasion. ”
