Awards for Excellence

Typically held in June, this event is a highlight of the CDCC year.  CDCC Members and guests join together to name the Small Business of the Year, the Large Employer of the Year, and the Young Professional of the Year, all selected by CDCC members.  In addition, volunteers are recognized, the CDCC Board Chair presents the “State of the Chamber Address,” and members celebrate the graduation of the Leadership Central Delaware class.
