The Rockport-Fulton Chamber of Commerce is seeking nominations for three awards to be announced during the “Changing of the Gavel Banquet” Thursday, June 6 at the La Palma Event Center. One award winner will be nominated from the community at large for Citizen of the Year, one by members of the chamber for Chamber Member of the Year, and one for non-profit Chamber Member Organization of the Year.

Those who stepped up during the year as our recovery process continues will receive special plaques.

“It is an honor just to be nominated and we have so many worthy people. I would like to receive as many nominations as possible,” said Chairman of the Board Jatin Bhakta.

The chamber board encourages members to reflect and think back at the past year and nominate someone deserving of this award. Deadline for submitting a nomination is 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 22.

Nomination forms include the criteria for selection, and are available at the chamber office (319 Broadway on Rockport Harbor).

The banquet will feature the new theme “This is Home – Building Business, Building Community.”

Incoming and outgoing officers and directors will be recognized and the past year’s accomplishments will be reviewed.

For more information, contact the chamber at 729-6445.
