Nominate the Best of the Best of Carthage

by Neely Myers – Membership Director

In January, the Chamber will be shining the spotlight on the best of Carthage. It’s not too early to save the date for the annual Chamber Banquet on Friday, January 19th at the auditorium of the CMC Campus. We will celebrate with a Kentucky Derby theme and honor the year’s most triumphant ladies and gentlemen of the community. We will be presenting awards to outstanding teachers, business leaders, volunteers, and community members, as well as thanking our leadership and members for their support in 2017.

Most important right now though, we need your nominations for Citizen of the Year, Emerging Leader of the Year, Small Business of the Year and Spotlight Award by the end of this month, Thursday, November 30th. You can pick up the nomination form at the Chamber of Commerce, between 8:30 and 5 or download them from You might be thinking who should I nominate? Here’s a little information to get you thinking.

The Citizen of the Year Award will be presented to an individual who has had a tremendous impact on the Carthage community.  Persons nominated for this award must:
• Be a current Carthage resident

The Emerging Leader of the Year Award is presented to one Chamber member each year in recognition of those who further their career path or begin a new career path.
