Central Delaware is very familiar with excellence. Our cherished community of passionate professionals work tirelessly to make central Delaware the gem that it is, therefore, it is only fitting for the Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce to offer a chance for our local outstanding individuals to be recognized by their peers.
The CDCC is honored to facilitate awards to showcase the time, talents and treasure that each nominee has exemplified. Each year, business professionals are nominated in three categories: Large Employer of the Year (for companies of more than 50 employees), Small Business of the Year (for companies of up to 50 employees), and Young Professional of the Year (for individuals between the ages of 21 and 35). All nominations are carefully reviewed by the Excellence in Business Committee and ultimately three nominations are chosen for each category.
Now we need your help in recognizing our nominees for their phenomenal achievements throughout the year. The winners are determined by fellow chamber members and will be presented at the Awards for Excellence Celebration this upcoming June 23.
The time has come for the voice of the people to ring. Voting is now officially open and the deadline to submit is May 25.
Each CDCC member business is asked to cast one vote in each category for the nominee they think embodies excellence. Voters, please take into consideration the growth of the individual/company, their response to trials and tribulations, and their involvement with their local community. These are pillars of strong leadership skills that must not be taken lightly.
Now presenting the incredible candidates. In the Large Employer of the Year category: Dover Federal Credit Union, KSI, State Street Assisted Living. In the Small Employer of the Year category: Haass’ Family Butcher Shop, La Baguette Bakery and Catering, Tre Sorelle Dolce Ice Cream and Mini Golf.

It is crucial that the central Delaware chamber community proudly and openly support their fellow hardworking individuals. The community of central Delaware is unlike any other because one company’s success counts as a success for all of us because we are stronger together than we could ever be on our own. Motivate your fellow businesses and professionals by showing your support for them with your vote. The CDCC would love to have full membership participation this year. The deadline to vote is May 25.
