Wakulla County Chamber Partners with CENTURYLINK and WASTE PRO to Honor Business Excellence

The Wakulla County Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce our partnership with CenturyLink, leading provider of high-quality broadband, video and voice services, and Waste Pro, the Florida based company which is one of this country’s fastest growing solid waste collection, recycling, processing and disposal companies to serve as the premier sponsors of the 2012 Wakulla County Chamber Business Excellence Awards.

The Wakulla County Chamber Business Excellence Awards and Environmental Stewardship Awards were established eight years ago to recognize a Wakulla County Chamber business that exemplifies outstanding achievement and contributions to the community.

The Environmental Stewardship Award is given to the Chamber member that owns and/or operates a business, organization, or a residential development that promotes responsible environmental preservation. With the addition this year of the Chamber Member of the Year Award, we will recognize an owner or an employee of a member business whose service and dedication have made a significant contribution to the Chamber and the community. Solicitations for nominations will begin in mid-February.

As the newly installed President of the Wakulla County Chamber, I established my priorities to include creating new ways of reaching our young professionals and commit to setting examples of ways to reach excellence despite the challenges of these economic times.

It is important we set a high standard and demonstrate our Chamber is here for all businesses in our area. We know there are local businesses and individuals who demonstrate the excellence we’re looking for, and we want to recognize them. CenturyLink and Waste Pro are examples of two businesses giving back and making it possible for these awards to be presented. We appreciate their support.  IMMEDIATE RELEASE doc
