128th Annual Awards - RECAP

128th Annual Meeting and Awards Luncheon

January 27, 2017 // Silverado Resort and Spa

Each year, Napa businesses and community leaders are recognized for business excellence and community impact at the Napa Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Meeting & Awards. Honoring a 128-year community tradition, the Annual Meeting & Awards provides a unique opportunity for the community to engage, connect and collaborate, acknowledging the collaborative hard work of Chamber staff, members, community leaders, stakeholders and local elected officials. 

The 128th Annual Meeting & Awards was held on January 27, 2017, at the Silverado Resort and Spa. Award winners were announced via video footage filmed by Shutterbolt Film & Media, and were then welcomed to the stage by seasoned emcee, Tim Roye, also known as the "Voice of the Warriors." The awards were presented to the winners by several sponsors.

The sold out ballroom crowd included Congressman Mike Thompson, Senator Bill Dodd, County District Attorney Allison Haley; Board of Supervisors, Ryan Gregory, Alfredo Pedroza, Belia Ramos; and City of Napa Mayor Jill Techel. It marked the first time that all five city Mayors and Chamber executives were present at a Chamber event during the tenure of President/CEO Travis Stanley.
