Don’t miss an opportunity to reward your favorite business. Each year the Saline Area Chamber of Commerce honors two local businesses with the coveted Business Enterprise Award. This award represents the most prestigious mark of distinction given to any business in the Saline area market. The 18th annual Business Enterprise Awards program is now under way. One award will be presented to a business with 20 or fewer employees and one to a firm with more than 20 employees. The awards recognize established, successful companies that have exhibited exemplary business practices. Service to the community as well as a commitment to the health and productivity of the Saline area are also essential attributes.
Nominations are open to the entire community. Nomination forms with selection criteria are available at the Saline Area Chamber of Commerce, Saline City Hall, Saline District Library, Saline Community Education, and The Saline Reporter. Nominations must be received at the Chamber office, 141 E. Michigan Avenue, Suite B, by mail, fax, or in person by Tuesday, September 3rd.
