Business on the RISE Awards to Honor Local Businesses

HENDERSON, Nev. – The Henderson Chamber of Commerce will host its inaugural Business on the RISE awards ceremony from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21, at Sunset Station Casino and Hotel, 1301 W. Sunset Road in Henderson.

At the event, the winners of the chamber’s 2013 Business on the RISE awards will be announced. Nominations were accepted in six categories including Business on the RISE, Outstanding Non-Profit, All in the Family, Innovation, Outstanding Community Service and Above & Beyond.

A committee vetted the nominations, and three finalists from each category were chosen. Members of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce voted to select the winners. Although three finalists were chosen per category, only one will be honored with the award in each category.

The Business on the RISE award will honor an outstanding business in operation for three years or less. The non-profit award will be awarded to a non-profit organization that has made a significant positive impact on the Southern Nevada community. A company that is doing something new, different, smarter or better and has a positive impact on the community, along with a family-owned and operated business, and a company exemplifying exceptional customer service also will be honored.

“We are looking forward to honoring our members in this new way,” said Scott Muelrath, president/CEO of the Henderson Chamber of Commerce. “This gives us another avenue to honor the companies that are changing the future of Southern Nevada.”

Any business could be nominated, but to receive an award, membership to the Henderson Chamber of Commerce is required and must have been attained at least one month prior to the awards ceremony on Nov. 21.

The Henderson Chamber of Commerce is a nonprofit, voluntary organization committed to promoting and supporting member businesses and economic development.
