Business and community leaders come together for this crowning event of the Chamber year!

Join us Wednesday, June 8 at the Omni Grove Park Inn for an evening of celebration, honoring local business and community leaders and featuring two-time Paralympian John Register as our keynote!

                                                          Meeting 2021

John Register is a two-time Paralympian, Paralympic Games Silver Medalist, Persian Gulf War veteran, and TEDx Motivational Speaker. He embraced a “new normal mindset” in becoming an amputee following a misstep over a hurdle while training for the 1996 Olympic Games, after participation in two consecutive Olympic trials.

Register teaches business professionals through his “Hurdling Adversity” speeches and podcasts to “amputate fear and embrace their new normal,” as they discover “stories within themselves.” He finds that “it is the personal stories that inspire teams more profoundly with greater impact.”

We’ll also be presenting the following awards at our Annual Meeting:

  • Excellence in Public Service Award – presented by Mission Health
  • Small Business Leader of the Year – presented by HomeTrust Bank
  • Family Business Award – presented by UNC Asheville Family Business Forum
  • President’s Award – presented by First Bank
