The Chamber Bright Stars for 2016 will be recognized on Thursday, October 27th at the semi-annual Chamber Leadership meeting and ninth annual Chamber Bright Star Awards presentation of the Northern Ohio Area Chambers of Commerce (NOACC) at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, 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.

Each Chamber’s Bright Star 2016, will accept his/her certificate and trophy from at the presentation at the event.

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 ninth year for the Chamber Bright Star Awards, and again has given an opportunity to recognize these volunteers among their peer groups, as chamber representatives, board members and spouses will also be in attendance.

Cindy Caldwell, board chair for NOACC and the executive director of the Beachwood Chamber reminds us that, “A chamber’s success is due in great part to the support of its volunteers. They are the true cheerleaders of our organizations deserve our praise regularly.”
