On December 11, 2018, the Montgomery Chamber concluded its 146th Annual Meeting, a signature event for the region’s business community and elected leadership. This year’s meeting recapped the Chamber’s 2018 wins and highlighted economic development and tourism projects underway that will lead to future growth in the region.
The meeting included a keynote address from former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a video overview of the Chamber’s accomplishments and updates on initiatives underway, and 2018 Chairman, Judge Charles Price passed the gavel to incoming 2019 Chairman Willie Durham. The Chamber presented its first-ever MGM Impact Maker Awards, which honored individuals and companies making a
significant difference in the region.
This year the Chamber’s Montgomery Business Journal launched the MGM Impact Maker Awards,
sponsored by BB&T, to showcase member businesses and individuals who are making considerable
impacts within key goal areas of the Chamber’s Imagine A Greater Montgomery economic growth
strategy. Those strategic areas include: TALENT; ECONOMY; IMAGE; COMMUNITY AND MILITARY.
A call for nominations went out, and the response was overwhelming. More than 50 businesses and individuals were nominated and 7,000 votes cast. And at the meeting, the Chamber announced its First Ever Impact Makers!
