We're going to try this again as the polar vortex got to us on January 30 and we had to postpone our event. The Elgin Area Chamber’s 2018 Annual Meeting and High Five Awards Ceremony takes place on Wednesday, February 20 at Gifford’s Kitchen & Social, 2300 Bushwood Drive, from 4 to 6:00 p.m. The weather forecast on February 20 is cloudy and a high of 30 degrees -- that's above zero this time!
Join us as we have again combined the glitz and pageantry of our High Five Awards with our 111th Annual Meeting into one high flying and fun reception.
The event begins at 4 p.m. with networking until 5 p.m. followed by our program. This brief program features the formal installation of our board members: Nancy Abuali, Radius International, Ian Lamp, Lamp Construction, and Michael Wong, SmithAmundson.
That will be followed by a presentation of our Elgin Area Chamber and Elgin Development Group's success stories for 2018 and concludes with the recognition of our High Five Award winning members and organizations who helped contribute to our success in 2018. The following awards will be presented:
- Ambassador Award: Dr. Lee Plasmier
