The Roanoke Regional Chamber and Roanoke Regional Small Business Development Center are now accepting nominations for the 33rd  Annual Small Business Awards.

Members of the community are invited to nominate their favorite small businesses and nonprofits in one of the following categories: Business-to-Business Services, Business-to-Consumer Services, Health & Wellness, Residential & Commercial Business Services, Tourism & Hospitality, Micro-Business, Wholesale/Retail, Best New Business, Legacy and Not-for-Profit Organization of the Year.

New for 2019, the Small Business Awards program will recognize the top three finalists in each category. The winner of each for-profit category will go on to compete for the title of 2019 Small Business of the Year. The finalists and winners are selected by a committee of the region’s business and community leaders and industry experts.

In addition, the Chamber will recognize the Small Business Veteran of the Year. This is a person who has made a significant contribution to the local economy through ownership of a small business and has made a difference in the community by promoting a sense of duty and volunteerism.
