A ceremony honoring outstanding examples of philanthropic giving and citizenship.
For more than 25 years, the Chamber has recognized businesses that invest in the economic, cultural and humanitarian advancement of the Rensselaer County region by bestowing the Van Rensselaer Awards and the Edward H. "Ebbie" Pattison Citizenship Award, recognizing an individual who demonstrates good citizenship and a community-centered spirit.
This year, we will be honoring each of our award recipients in a new, virtual video format, free for all Chamber members to view and attend.
Attending the Virtual Awards Ceremony is free for all Chamber Members! Please register below.
In addition, we are offering a $25 'Charcuterie & Cheers to-go' package to all members. The package includes a delicious arrangement of assorted cheeses, nuts, cured meats, olives, dried and fresh fruits, crackers and champagne (non-alcoholic beverage available) to enjoy during the awards ceremony!
