Every year the chamber honors an individual who has distinguished themselves through their sustained volunteerism. This person's dedication is substantially beyond the normal performance of one’s job description, with an emphasis on community involvement. Citizens can nominate an individual for this prestigious award and the Citizen of the Year Alumni meet and review all applications and vote on the winner. The COTY is presented at the Annual Banquet in April.
