History of the IMPACT Awards

To celebrate the Chamber’s centennial in 1988, the Small Business Council created the “Small Business Person of the Year” Award to honor “the individual who demonstrates professional leadership qualities and outstanding service to the community, as well as stability and creativity in his or her respective business.” In its twentieth year (2007), the Small Business Awards became the IMPACT Awards. This year’s honorees will join the long list of successful Valley businesses that have made an impact on our community.
