Formerly known as the “Yellow Jasmine Awards,” the Columbia Impact Awards will be held at the Columbia Marriott.
The Columbia Impact Awards put a spotlight on those Partners who are impacting the business community of the Midlands.
The Cathy Novinger Trailblazer Award honors an individual who has shown exemplary leadership in his/her industry, moves the needle for business, and positively impacts our community.
The Impact Award for Small Business and for Partner of the Year recognizes Chamber Partners who have shown great growth, significant achievements, or realized economic and cultural growth that benefits the business community.
The Impact Award for Diversity & Inclusion celebrates a Partner that goes above and beyond to create a diverse work environment by breaking the glass ceiling.
Finally, the Golden Nail Award will be bestowed upon a business or property owner for exemplary contributions to the physical character of the greater Midlands region through cosmetic or commercial means such as restoration of a façade, historic building, re-purposing of a blighted space, or renovating a creative new space during the previous calendar year.
