The Athens Area Chamber of Commerce is currently accepting nominations for the annual ATHENA Award. Nominees are honored at the Women in Business Council's Annual ATHENA Luncheon to be held at the Graduate Athens Ballroom on Friday, December 5, 2014. The winner will be announced at the Chamber’s annual meeting in February 2015.
All nominations must be received by Friday, November 7, 2014.
The Chamber and award sponsor Heyward Allen Motor Co., have sponsored the local award since 1988. The award honors women who have shown professional excellence, dedication to community service and who have actively supported other women in their careers and leadership development.
Although locally the award is closely associated with the Classic City, it is actually an international award. Started in 1982 for the Lansing, Mich., chamber of commerce, it expanded to become a national and international program.
Since the program’s inception more than 5000 awards have been presented in over 500 communities in the United States, Canada, China, Russia, the United Arab Emirates and most recently the United Kingdom. By honoring exceptional leaders, the ATHENA Award® Program seeks to inspire others to achieve excellence in their professional and personal lives.
