• Annual Awards Gala

  • The Santa Maria Valley Annual Awards brings Chamber members together to salute our annual honorees, to reflect on the past year, and to look forward to the coming year. Awards presented at each banquet include the Large and Small Businesses of the Year, Robert P. Hatch Citizen of the Year, Nonprofit of the Year, Young Professional of the Year and the Robert F. Grogan Public Service Award. We also recognize outgoing Board members and formally install the new Board of Directors.

    Our 2020 award recipients have been announced! We will be recognizing this year's award winners and welcoming our new Chamber Board members during a TV broadcast on KCOY on September 24th at 7:30pm (the show will also be available to watch on YouTube HERE).
