Rowlett Chamber Announces New Awards and Recognition Program

(ROWLETT, TX — October 9, 2018) The Rowlett Chamber of Commerce has overhauled its Chamber Awards and Recognition Program with its members in mind. Starting in January 2019, members will see a new slate of awards that are tailored to the Chamber members, that recognize success and outstanding performance, and that promote the business community in Rowlett.

Chamber Board Chair, Whitney Laning stated “We could not be more excited about this new initiative and hope our members will like the new look and feel of our awards as much as we do.”

The Chamber will be rolling the awards program out gradually starting with those presented at the Annual Awards Banquet in January.

“We know that our members have a story to tell about their business success, and we want to hear it. Many of the awards for the Banquet ask for member participation by completing an application. And for the first time at the Chamber we will be having outside professionals participate in evaluating the applications. This new approach to soliciting and rating applications allow us to be more objective and fair to our members,” said Chamber President Michael Gallops

Specifics about the awards being solicited for the Annual Awards Banquet will be available on the Chamber website soon. The Chamber asks members to consider completing an application and being recognized for the great things you are doing.

The first of the new awards to be rolled out include:

  • Community Impact – Business
  • Community Impact – Non-Profit
  • Customer Service Excellence
  • Entrepreneur Trailblazer
  • Workforce Bridge Builder

To be considered for an award, members must complete an application and email it, along with their business logo and any supporting documentation, to Michael Gallops at by Friday, November 2, 2018. Applications are available online at starting Friday, October 12, 2018.

Awards will be presented at the Annual Awards Banquet to be held on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at the Hyatt Place, Garland. The top three nominees will be notified by Chamber staff.
