Here at the Chamber, we appreciate our business community. That is why every year, for the past eleven years, we ask the citizens of St. Tammany to tell us which businesses have made an impression on our parish and should be considered for the Chamber’s prestigious Business Appreciation Awards.
Nominations will be collected for ten different award categories, including:
Innovation Award: Awarded to a company that is a leader in technological change and/or incorporates new technologies in their day-to-day business.
Employee Training Award: Given to a business that supports employees’ continuing education.
