Information San Benito County Chamber of Commerce
The San Benito County Chamber of Commerce is busy organizing our largest event of the year – our 102nd Annual Awards Dinner, which will be held on Saturday, October 21, 2023 at Leal Vineyards.
We are pleased to announce that this year’s event will be presented by our 2022 Large Business of the Year Honoree and one of San Benito County’s leading companies, Teknova.
The purpose of the “Man & Woman of the Year” award is to recognize and honor residents living in and serving San Benito County as a role model for continuous and outstanding volunteer service to our community. Nominees do not have to be Chamber members. The Review Committee considers only work done in a voluntary capacity, length of service, benefit to the community, and the spirit in which the work is done.
The “Business of the Year” award recognizes and honors businesses in the County of San Benito that have exhibited creativity, overcome obstacles, and provided excellent customer service. The San Benito County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors will select the Business of the Year honorees from nominations submitted. Businesses must be current chamber members.
