It was a decade ago when the Traverse City Area Chamber of Commerce launched an initiative to highlight the major impact of small business on Northern Michigan’s economy – and the Chamber’s annual Small Business Celebration was born.
The Small Business Celebration has evolved into one of the Chamber’s most-recognized and participatory programs, as last year’s SBC generated a record number of nominations and applications. The SBC is open to for-profit companies in the 5-county area with up to 150 employees that’s been in business for at least three years. Last year, Kalkaska Screw Products was named the 2013 Hagerty Small Business of the Year.
Anyone can nominate up to 10 companies for the award, and businesses need not be Chamber members to participate. Nominations will be accepted through Feb. 7, and you can access the online nomination form by clicking here.
