Annual Dinner & Member Awards

Our Annual Dinner and Chamber Member Awards has become a tradition. This is a semi-formal event and is a celebration of our Chamber Members and all that they have accomplished within the last year. During the event our guests will enjoy an elegant dinner and an awards presentation for categories that our members are nominated for by the community.  The winners are announced during the presentation and then given an award.  Ticket sales, donations, and sponsorship proceeds will supplement the expenses of that dinner and help support the Bell County Chamber.
