Sullivan County Chamber of Commerce Annual Meeting & Pride Awards Gala

The Sullivan County Chamber of Commerce has been honoring businesses and individuals for 49 years. The Pride Awards Gala honors individuals, businesses and organizations from throughout Sullivan County for their community involvement and their contributions to the economic development in the county.

The winners selected are Businessperson of the Year, Distinguished Service to the County, Distinguished Achievement in the County, Emerging Leader, Township Award, and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Workplace Excellence; all to be honored at this prestigious ceremony that takes place on November 9, 2023 at the Villa Roma Resort, Callicoon, NY.

Everyone in Sullivan County was invited to participate in the nomination process. It is a way to honor people throughout Sullivan County that wouldn’t normally get recognized, but these individuals deserve the most prestigious recognition.
