The Conway Area Chamber of Commerce’s second annual Women in Business Awards will take place Tuesday, Dec. 3, at the Conway Expo Center and Fairgrounds. The event will begin with a panel discussion at 9 a.m. followed by the awards luncheon at 11:30 a.m. Terri Jordan, vice president of technology for Microsoft Retail Stores, will be the guest speaker.
The Women in Business Awards honor individuals in the Conway area who have excelled in leadership and community service and who have inspired others on both a personal and professional level. The Chamber is accepting nominations for the awards now through Wednesday, Sept. 25. A panel of Chamber executives outside the state will select the award recipients.
At the December event, five individuals will receive the “Outstanding Woman in Business Award.” Those selected will embody high standards of excellence, dedication and accomplishment to their respective organizations, industries and to the business community. Of the five recipients, one will receive the prestigious “Diamond Achievement Award.” This award recognizes an individual who has inspired and empowered many generations of women and who has had a positive impact on those in her profession and in the community.
