Small Business Person of the Year

Each year at the Greater Dalton Chamber of Commerce Annual Banquet, a local business member is honored as the Small Business Person of the Year. This award is made in recognition of the outstanding contributions by an entrepreneur in our community.

The Small Business Person of the Year Award recognizes a business leader who owns and operates a for-profit company that employs 50 or fewer full-time employees, bears principal responsibility for operations, who has experienced recent business growth, and who is involved in the development and growth of the Greater Dalton community. The application for the Small Business Person of the Year Award will be available in the fall of 2021.
