The Annual Chamber Banquet is an event where businesses in McKenzie, TN, come together to network, invest in the community, learn ways to problem-solve locally and receive recognition for their achievements. This year’s banquet was the first to date and was held at The Venue at Waddell Place on June 21, 2022.
Attendees totaled 160 this year, and the Chamber Board hopes that number will double next year. Everyone was encouraged to attend the event, so both Chamber members and non-members were welcomed. The banquet consisted of a meal catered by Miss D’s Kitchen, a speaker, and an awards ceremony. Chamber Chairman, Josh Crawford, addressed the crowd with an overview of the Chamber’s events since its opening in January 2021 and a vision for the future. As this was the first banquet, the Board felt it was necessary to award every member with a Charter Member plaque for their investment and faith in the institution. Next year, the Board hopes to have a nomination process where members will vote on businesses that meet certain criteria for specific awards. These awards will be geared towards the needs unique to the community.
