Event Sneak Peek

The Columbia Impact Awards strive to spotlight the dedication of outstanding organizations and individuals that make the Columbia region a vibrant place to visit, live and do business. The Columbia Chamber’s Impact Awards recognizes dedication to excellence in the following categories:

The Cathy Novinger Trailblazer Award honors an individual who has demonstrated extraordinary leadership within their organization and community. This individual should be known as an innovator, a great Chamber Partner, a visionary, and an advocate for the region.

The Impact Award for Small Business recognizes a Chamber Partner who has shown great growth, significant achievements, or realized economic and cultural growth that benefits the business community.

The Impact Award for Diversity & Inclusion celebrates a Chamber Partner that goes above and beyond to implement and advocate for an inclusive and diverse work environment.

Finally, the Golden Nail Award is given to a business or property owner for exemplary contributions to the physical character of the greater Midlands region through cosmetic or commercial means during the previous calendar year.

We are excited to share that our keynote speaker will be John Sacksteder, President of Mark Anthony Brewing. The new $400 million Mark Anthony Brewing plant coming to Columbia will create 300 new jobs and represent one of the largest breweries built in the U.S. in over 25 years.
