• We Are Shelby County

  • 2020 Chamber Awards Gala

  • On February 27, the Shelby County Chamber of Commerce celebrated the 2020 Chamber Awards Gala. This year, the dinner was "A Royal Evening" for our award recipients.

    The Large Business Champion, Small Business Champion, and Non-Profit Champion awards left the audience on the edge of their seats again this year with anticipation of who would be awarded these honors.  Each of these nine finalists met with a professional video company, Tilt23 Studios, who shot vignettes about the business or organization.

    Below are the videos that were debuted, both Champion and individual award recipients.
