It’s almost time!

We are getting ready behind-the-scenes to open our E-Day nomination process sometime in June! Each year we seek to honor and mark our region entrepreneurs who are working hard every day to make our region a better place to live. Again in 2021, we will be also celebrating the pivots our business owners have had to make in the face of unprecedented challenges.
