• Awards: Thinking Big and Being Great Lakeshore Athena

  • Champions of Diversity Awards

    Each year the Chamber celebrates the diversity in our business community, and recognizes champion business leaders. We reach out to our members for nominations of businesses and individuals whose personal efforts make a difference. It's an opportunity to embrace diversity, celebrate local businesses and honor companies who exemplify leadership and success in our community.

  • Small Business Person of the Year

    Each year the Chamber selects a member business to be the Small Business Person of the Year.  Nominees must have been in business for at least five years and exemplify the best of small business in our community.  Nominees are judged based on an outstanding and growing business; innovative product(s), increasing jobs, increasing sales, overcoming adversity, and community contributions in the greater Holland/Zeeland community. 


  • Business Leadership Award

    This award recognizes an outstanding Chamber member for being a great employer who gives back to the community, invests in its facilities and its employees, and has a positive history of job growth and retention.  Two of these prestigious awards are given each fall at the annual meeting of the West Coast Chamber. One is presented to a member employer who has 100 or more employees and the other award goes to a member with 99 or less employees.
