CRAWFORDVILLE, FLA. – The Wakulla County Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that Ameris Bank  will again be the Title Sponsor of the 2017 Wakulla County Chamber Business Excellence Awards.
“Sponsoring the Wakulla Chamber’s Business Excellence Awards is really a perfect fit for us,” said Tallahassee Market President Robert Vice. “Ameris Bank has always been committed to the highest standards of excellence in business and service and this sponsorship allows us to share and promote those values.”
With headquarters in Moultrie, Ga., Ameris Bank is nearing 100 full-service banking and mortgage locations in four  states, including branches in Tallahassee and Crawfordville. The bank’s mission is to be a major financial service provider through empowered employees creating a positive community impact and delivering a competitive shareholder return.
 “As a proud member of the Crawfordville community, we are pleased to support the great work the Chamber is doing in support of our local businesses.”
2017 will be the 13th year the Chamber has honored the businesses in categories which include  business service, professional service, hospitality and tourism, retail excellence, school and government. Categories will again include Non-Profit Business and Green Business (formerly Environmental Stewardship).
The Wakulla News is again sponsoring the popular Wakulla Area Business of the Year award that recognizes a business that does not have to be a member. 
“We are pleased to be sponsoring the award for the Area Business and working with the Chamber to promote local businesses,” said Wakulla News Editor William Snowden. “Recognizing the efforts of an outstanding Area Business further celebrates the strengthening of our local economy.”
Founded in 1897, The Wakulla News is the oldest continuously operated business in Wakulla County.
Solicitations for nominations in categories will begin early September and the awards banquet is set for November 14.
