COOS BAY, Ore. -- The annual Bay Area Chamber of Commerce Awards banquet is set for Saturday, January 27.

Besides acknowledging the officers, board members and committee chairs for the past year, and introducing the members who will serve in those roles for the upcoming year, the chamber says they have a variety of awards and recognition "which truly make this a community celebration."

They're asking for your help with one of the evening's main events - they are looking for nominations for Citizen and Business of the Year.

Citizen of the Year is an honor awarded to a member of the community who, by consistently giving of their time, energy and resources, has made Oregon’s Bay Area "a better place to live," the chamber said.

Additionally, the Business of the Year award is given to a business that has exhibited excellence in products and customer service, contributed time, manpower and resources to community improvement projects, and made significant contributions toward a healthy economy through excellence in employee relationships and training.

They'd like you to nominate a person or business you think meets those standards.

Nominations for both honors are open through January 12.

Give the Bay Area Chamber of Commerce a call, look on their website, or stop by the Chamber office on Central Avenue in Coos Bay to pick up nomination forms.
