  • 2018 Chamber Awards Gala

  • On March 1, the Shelby County Chamber of Commerce celebrated the 2018 Chamber Awards Gala. This year, the dinner was themed around Magic.

    Here in Shelby County, we have the MAGIC - Most Amazing Group of Involved Citizens!

    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, The Story Shop, who shot vignettes about the business or organization.

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