The Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce is accepting nominations for its 2017 IMPACT Awards, which honor Valley organizations for the positive impact they have made on the area's business community.
Nominations for the awards can be submitted by anyone until Jan. 6 on the chamber's website, www.phoenixchamber.com/impact.
Two businesses — one with less than 250 employees and one with 250 or more employees — will be honored in each of four categories: community champion, economic driver, innovator and Arizona impact. An IMPACT Business of the Year award will also be granted.
Winners will be celebrated at the 30th annual IMPACT Awards Luncheon to be held May 10.
The chamber is also seeking nominations for the IMPACTful Nonprofit Award, which is open to 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations. Nominations can be submitted at phoenixchamber.com/IMPACTful.
“For 30 years, the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce has honored industrious businesses and their positive impact on the Greater Phoenix community,” Todd Sanders, president and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, said “The IMPACT Awards recognize every type of business from small, locally owned shops to large corporations that fold themselves into the fabric of business. Throughout the decades, these awards have honored businesses that started with a spark of genius and have grown into economic drivers that move Phoenix forward.”
