Awards Gala Committee

Our Annual Chamber's Choice Awards Gala is so much more than just another fun event! It is an opportunity to recognize those in our community who go above and beyond and help to make Sitka such a wonderful place to live. It is on this evening that we announce the winners of the prestigious Cossack Cap Award, the Business of the Year Award and the New Business of the Year Award! The support that the Sitka Chamber receives on this important night helps us to �promote, support and facilitate commerce and economic growth in the community� throughout the year.
