Annual Celebration

In September, members gather for an evening of celebration and recognition as we start a new year for the Bemidji Area Chamber of Commerce. Traditionally, the event includes a social hour, wine wall, raffle prizes, dinner, and program introducing our new Board of Directors, however this year due to COVID-19, the event was held virtually.

During this event, we pass the gavel to the newly appointed Chair and share what is new for the upcoming year. We also take time to recognize those who have volunteered throughout the year and award the Ambassador of the Year. The prestigious Charlie Naylor Award as well as the Awards of Excellence is also presented.

If you haven't attended this event in the past, we highly encourage you to do so! Until then, check out our 2020 Annual Meeting adn Charlie Naylor videos below!
