Small Business Appreciation Month
More than 900 Chamber partners are classified as a small business (100 employees or less). The Chamber celebrates these partners during Small Business Appreciation Month in May with the following activities:
- Chamber Golf Challenge
- Women in Business Breakfast
- Small Business Appreciation Luncheon honoring the Small Business Person of the Year
Chamber Golf Challenge
The Chamber Golf Challenge gives Chamber partners a chance to network with one another while enjoying a day of golf. More than 130 Chamber partners come out to play golf and support the Chamber. The Small Business Appreciation Committee works very hard to find sponsorships for holes, goodie bags, food and drinks, so that once you come to play you are catered for the day.
Women in Business Breakfast
The Women in Business Breakfast is a time to celebrate women and honor those in business. Over 100 women attend the breakfast and enjoy a guest speaker, goodie bags and door prizes.
Small Business Appreciation Luncheon
The Small Business Appreciation Luncheon is held in honor of the Small Business Person of the Year. Small Businesses from all over Bowling Green and Warren County come together to celebrate small businesses and the accomplishments they share.
Sponsorship opportunities are available for this event.
Small Business Person of the Year
Each year the Small Business Appreciation Committee accepts nominations for the Small Business Person of the Year award. Past recipients of the award select the winner. The Small Business Person of the Year is then announced at a news conference and honored at the Small Business Appreciation Luncheon.
