Community Champion Nomination Criteria
A Community Champion is a business leader, past or present, who exemplifies the characteristics of being successful and giving back to their community through their time, talent and resouces. A Community Champion is someone who has a vision to improve the community and the determination, creativity and ingenuity to make a difference. Dedicating their time through board service, leadership, volunteering or implementation of a new program, this person focuses on making Harrisonburg and Rockingham County a better place to live. For the Community Champion award, it is not the size of the check written but the abilty to impact lives in a positive way.
The Chamber of Commerce accepts nominations for Community Champion and presents the award at our Annual Banquet and Awards Ceremony held in January of each year.
