Nominations open for chamber awards

Do you know a small business that rocks leadership, ethics and organization?

How about a local Alaska chamber of commerce known for its community involvement and excellent business reputation?

What about an outstanding Alaskan whose contributions to Alaska go above and beyond?

Online nominations are now open for the Alaska Chamber’s 2015 Top Business Awards, and can be submitted now through Aug. 1. Nominators can choose from three categories: Bill Bivins Small Business of the Year; Local Chamber of Commerce of the Year; and William A. Egan Outstanding Alaskan of the Year.

To nominate, go to the Alaska Chamber’s website at

The awards honor the accomplishments of leading small businesses, chambers of commerce, individuals and the contributions they make to Alaska’s economy.

 Winners will be announced in October during the state chamber’s Awards Gala in Fairbanks.
