The West Hartford Chamber of Commerce will hold its annual meeting and dinner on June 27, 2022, and at that event will be presenting a variety of awards honoring individuals and businesses that work to make the town special and improve the community.

Nominations for the awards must be made by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, May 19.

Kate Kobs, director of Development and Programs for the West Hartford Chamber of Commerce, said this year’s event will include presentation of the inaugural Elizabeth Gustin Basil Women’s Leadership Award, a new honor which was announced at last year’s annual meeting.

“Named for the late Elizabeth Gustin Basil, who was the Chamber’s first female chairperson, this award will honor women in leadership roles who have positively impacted other women professionals,” Kobs said. “Additionally, we continue our tradition of the Noah Webster Award, our most prestigious award. This is given to a person or business that has exhibited extraordinary commitment to the Town of West Hartford and its community.”

Additional award categories include:

  • New Business of the Year; Legacy Business (25+ years in business)
  • Economic Driver
  • Entrepreneur of the Year
  • Non-Profit of the Year
  • Young Professional of the Year
  • Unsung Hero
