“Business and Community Working Together” is the motto of your Tualatin Chamber of Commerce, which is celebrating its 39th year of serving the interests of business and community. The mission of the Chamber is to help businesses succeed by providing connectivity through education, promotion and advocacy. We serve our community by promoting our businesses, which in turn promotes and increases our city’s economy by advocating for reliable and accessible transit options, affordable housing, livable wages and partnering with our school district for programs that help our students be workforce ready.
The Chamber takes pride in our motto and sees it put to use every day throughout our community with our businesses engaged in and supporting each other and our citizens. We see our members volunteering and giving back to the community that supports them, whether it be through sponsorship of activity or local event, hands-on work with a local non-profit or donating products and services to those in need.
To recognize these businesses and community leaders, the Tualatin Chamber announces its 39th Excellence in Business Awards Celebration. This annual event is designed to celebrate and honor the chamber businesses, selected by the membership, who represented Excellence in Business and Community in 2019. The award categories are New Business of the Year, Chamber Volunteer of the Year, Business Leader of the Year, Spirit of Tualatin Individual and Business, and Lifetime Achievement Award.
Come celebrate with us and our businesses who contribute so much to our community. We are changing up our event this year and will be Roaring into 2020 with a 1920s speakeasy theme on Friday, Apr. 24, beginning at 5:30 p.m., at the Tualatin Country Club. Come dressed in your best flapper dress or gangster suit and say the password at the door. There will be a cocktail hour, seated dinner with a dessert dash, awards ceremony, DJ and dancing (can you do the Charleston?), along with a raffle, cigar bar and surprise entertainment. This is a premier Chamber and community event not to be missed.
