The Pinnacle Awards luncheon was started more than 20 years ago by the Chamber’s Women’s Network and has become one of the premier business gatherings in the region, attracting more than 1,000 attendees. The awards are designed to honor leading women for outstanding achievement in the workplace, demonstrated leadership that has made a difference, and a commitment to enhance the quality of life in the region.
Note: The Pinnacle Awards honor women from Chamber member organizations only with the exception of the Achievement in Management – Government category.
