The North Tampa Bay Chamber has reimagined its annual Celebrating Excellence Awards, in light of the COVID-19 global pandemic.
Every year, the awards celebrate businesses in the region, recognizing the people and companies that have demonstrated a unique vision, innovation, and best business practices, according to a chamber news release.
This year, the 2020 Celebrating Excellence Awards will honor organizations that have demonstrated commitment and resilience during the past year and which have benefited the community, the release says.
“We recognize COVID-19 has affected businesses across our region in a variety of ways, resulting in new innovations and adjustments to business models,” the release says. “As such we have reimagined our Annual Celebrating Excellence Awards. This year the awards ceremony will be held November 12th via a professional production fully streaming with live remotes, live feeds, and celebratory toast.”
The North Tampa Bay Chamber prides itself on its 4 Core Values. It will be presenting these awards this year:
- Excellence in Integrity Award: Honoring an organization whose demonstrated commitment and resilience during the past year has benefited the community and region
- Excellence in Collaboration Award: Honoring an organization that has sought to build bridges and partner with individuals and groups that has strengthened the community and region during the past year
- Excellence in Inclusivity Award: Honoring an organization that has demonstrated, through its organizational culture or in service to the community, leadership in diversity and inclusion practice during the past year
- Excellence in Innovation Award: Honoring an organization whose demonstrated unique ingenuity during the past year has benefited the community and region
In addition to the four Core Value awards, the chamber will be adding a Community Hero(es) Award, which provides a way to highlight some additional individuals — in addition to organizations — who are being honored for their efforts, concern and compassionate response to the pandemic.
