Suite 4 has been named as Business of the Year in the 2016 McMinnville Area Chamber of Commerce Awards Ceremony, the only independent business awards program in McMinnville.
The McMinnville Area Chamber of Commerce Annual Awards Dinner offers an opportunity for the Chamber to celebrate the year and recognize the accomplishments of business and individual members. Business of the Year Awards recognizes top companies, teams, executives and products for their business success.
This award means so much to us. I certainly could not have won this award by myself,” says Suite 4 CEO and Founder, Rachel Karl. “My team, their creativity, hard work and dedication to our mission ‘To foster a strong and stable U.S. economy by helping businesses flourish and prosper through effective, results-driven marketing solutions’ as well as being a part of a strong Chamber and an amazing community is what makes something like this possible. This award just drives us to do more and be better.”
Chamber’s give out awards to recognize their members and these are customarily done at the Annual Meeting. The Bylaws require the organization to gather the membership once a year for an annual meeting so it is a perfect time to honor outstanding members. The Chamber asks the entire membership in good standing to nominate businesses and members for the awards. Once all the nominations are in, the list of nominees is sent to the main representative for each business (per the bylaws, each member business gets one vote) and they cast their vote for the awards. The Chamber staff tally the votes and the winner is announced at the Annual Meeting.
We are so very proud of this year’s nominees and recipients for their outstanding contributions to our community. We are honored to have them as members and are especially happy for the winners,” says Gioia Goodrum, President and CEO of the McMinnville Area Chamber of Commerce. “I am delighted to have Rachel and her team actively involved in so many Chamber activities. Their energy and commitment to the community and the Chamber is an example for all to emulate.”
