Business & Leadership Awards

Presented by Riverview Bank 

Featuring the First Citizen Award

Let's celebrate business! Wanting to recognize those businesses who exemplified the motto of the Greater Vancouver Chamber, Moving Business Forward, the Business & Leadership Awards were first introduced in 2012. For 10 years, the southwest Washington business community has nominated outstanding companies and individuals for recognition. 


Don't miss our live-streamed award ceremony on October 5, 2023, at 5PM via Facebook Live! Everyone can tune in for FREE!

Adding an in person option to the occasion, community members can participate in the celebration firsthand this year.

First Citizen Award

Sponsored by PeaceHealth

Help us recognize exemplary leaders who positively impact our community!

Since 1939, the annual First Citizen Award is presented to a Clark County resident who models the attributes of good citizenship through leadership, action, civic pride, and cultivates inclusive civic engagement practices.

These are individuals who, through their business, volunteering, and philanthropic efforts, improve the lives of those in the community by serving first.
