Business of the Year Award Nominations


At a special Forum Luncheon on June 13, 2022, the Salem Area Chamber of Commerce will recognize members who have gone above and beyond to help our community thrive over the past year with our Business of the Year Awards.

There are many ways in which our members help support our business community (community service, philanthropic efforts or partnerships, sponsorships, social programs, providing robust employee benefits packages, professional development and training opportunities, event hosting, etc.) and it’s time that we celebrate them together. Submit a nomination to help us shine a light on these deserving businesses, non-profits, and community initiatives so that our community can see the incredible work they’ve been doing over the past year!
