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. Last year’s banquet was the first to date and was held at The Venue at Waddell Place.
The 2nd Annual Chamber Banquet was held at the same venue, and food was provided by Simply Southern from Gleason, TN. We had a total of 32 tables (256 seats) available.

Attendees totaled 160 last year, and the Chamber Board hopes that number will double this year. Everyone was encouraged to attend the event, so both Chamber members and non-members were present. 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 necessary to award every member a Charter Member plaque for their investment and faith in the institution. This year, the Board hopes to have a nomination process in place where members vote on businesses that meet certain criteria for specific awards. These awards will be geared toward the needs unique to the community.
