 Bright Star Email Invitation 2012  Please RSVP to NOACC Office by October 18, 2012

Submit your chamber’s BRIGHT STAR–to be recognized at the NOACC CHAMBER BRIGHT STAR AWARDS and DINNER to be held Thursday, October 25, 2012 from 6-8 pm at the Great Lakes Science Center* 601 Erieside Ave, Cleveland OH 44114.   The Bright Star in your chamber is at least a two year member that could be the hardest working volunteer, or someone who promotes your chamber in outstanding ways….you decide who it is.  Each Chamber chooses their own Bright Star (only one per chamber) and every Bright Star will be honored that night (even if they can’t attend!)  If possible, a chamber representative(s) should accompany the Bright Star to the event.

We will be sending letters of congratulations and invitations to the Bright Stars for the presentation and preparing press releases with information on the chambers and their Bright Stars for local and regional publications—including a special pull-out section of the Inside Business Magazine November-December issue.

Even if your Bright Star cannot attend the event—give them the recognition they deserve.  There is NO COST to attend the event for anyone. Use the opportunity to promote your chamber and your great volunteer in the chamber newsletter, website, local media, etc.

Submit your Bright Star now (DEADLINE for submissions is September 21.) The form is attached or download the Chamber BRIGHT STAR 2012 Submission Form  here. To see the video from last year’s Bright Star presentations  click here.

NEW THIS YEAR:  Chambers please give us your BRIGHT SPOT (see bottom of application.) We want to share your good news and ideas.

 *SPECIAL ADMISSION:  All attendees are invited to park and visit the GLSC from 3:00 pm at NO COST!  (VALUE:  Adult admission $14 each plus $7 per car.)
