Annual Meeting set for April 9, 2019

Your Myrtle Beach Area Chamber's annual meeting is still a couple of months away, however, we are already hard at work preparing for this must-attend event. Register early for the 2019 annual membership meeting as we applaud the success of our investors with the presentation of business and individual awards and highlight your chamber’s accomplishments for 2018.

The annual meeting will take place Tuesday, April 9, from 5:30-8 p.m. at the Hilton Myrtle Beach Resort. All chamber investors and their staff are invited to this event. This year’s festivities include a cocktail reception from 5:30-6:30 p.m. followed by a dinner, chamber update and awards presentation. There is a $35 charge for chamber investors and $45 for nonmembers. Register online.

This year, your Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce will present awards for the Citizen of the Year, Ashby Ward Pioneer of the Year, Community Service, Business Innovation, Champion of Diversity, Nonprofit of the Year, Small Business of the Year, Chamber Volunteer of the Year, and Hospitality Employee of the Year.

It's time to nominate your business and staff for MBACC business awards. We highly encourage self-nominations – who knows more about your business than yourself? Award finalists receive two complimentary tickets to the annual meeting! The nomination form is quick to complete online. Deadline for nominations: Feb. 28.

During the evening event, the chamber also will recognize the Grand Strand Young Professional of the Year, Abby Smith, Grand Strand Young Professionals' Ambassador of the Year, Kristen Saurini, and Leadership Grand Strand's Ann DeBock Leadership Award recipient Ian Maguire.
