Two New Awards Debut at Annual Celebration of Excellence

Each year, the Erie Regional Chamber celebrates the excellence of its members in the business community. The long-standing Louis J. Tullio Community Service Award will share the stage on March 10th this year with two new awards: the Small Business of the Year Award and the Forward Award

The Small Business of the Year award will recognize a new or existing small business champion committed to collaboration and mentorship within the small business community. The recipient contributes to the economic health of the community through exceptional business practices and customer service, demonstrates a high level of community involvement through participation in civic, community, and Erie Regional Chamber projects, and demonstrates a consistent record of strong employee relations and dedication to developing their company culture. 

The Forward Award will honor the achievements of local businesses making a practice of building world-class company cultures and best practices to the Erie market. The recipient goes above and beyond to create positive workplace environments that have a unique culture and promote workplace flexibility, strong recruiting practices, employee retention, and development. Forward Award recipients demonstrate an attitude of excellence and outstanding achievement through creative solutions and excel in supporting and reinforcing the values of their company. Forward Award honorees set a high standard of integrity by leading through example, maintaining a high personal standard and promoting a team environment. This Forward Award will be given to those who go above and beyond showing exceptional initiative, perseverance, accountability, and commitment in exceeding the expectations of their duties as well as those who make significant, positive impacts on their industry and the community by supporting the sharing of knowledge and building collaborative relationships.

Join us on March 10th as we announce the winners of these two awards as well as honor our Louis J. Tullio award recipient for 2020 – Fred Rush, Jr. Over the course of the evening, we will also acknowledge  Young Erie Professional’s Young Professional of the Year awardee as well as recognize the 2019 and 2020 ATHENA Powerlink panelists.
