About NOACC Annual Chamber Bright Star Awards & Dinner:
A Chamber Bright Star is the person who goes above and beyond to participate in events, or someone who encourages others to get involved. They’re a chamber member who has been active for at least two years and has made a significant impact on the chamber through their activities in membership, fundraising, operations, etc.
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 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.
