The Lake Champlain Chamber’s 110th Annual Dinner and Cocktail Reception is the latest event to fall victim to 2020’s calendar of cancelled and rescheduled events. The 110th Annual Dinner and Cocktail Reception has been rescheduled for spring 2021.
And while we won’t be having a formal celebration until next year, we didn’t want to wait to recognize our award winners. This year, of all years, is not the time to skip giving out awards that acknowledge the incredible achievements made by our business community.
We are collecting nominations for our 2020 business awards to be presented at our rescheduled Annual Dinner.
