The Winston-Salem Chamber of Commerce is a supporter of local small businesses and is proud of their hard work in the community. The 2018 Truliant Small Business & Independent Small Business Awards recognizes small companies for their success and contributions to the community, while showcasing their achievements at the Chamber’s Annual Meeting.
Starting in mid-June, we will solicit nominations from as many sources in the community as possible. This includes emails to small businesses and those that provide services to small businesses, business and civic associations, advertisements on our website, newsletters, social media, press releases, etc.
Please submit nominations to Walter Farabee NO LATER THAN July 31, 2018. Please include company name and a contact person with contact information.
Chamber staff will contact nominees to congratulate them on their nomination and explain the application process. Nominees will have approximately two weeks to compile a small written packet that covers company history, business or management philosophy, response to challenges, innovative products or services offered and community-oriented contributions in their own words. The application does not require companies to disclose financials. The deadline for completing the application is August 31, 2018.
