The Port Orchard Chamber of Commerce invites the community to nominate candidates for this year’s Man and Woman of the Year. Nominations are due by Sept. 30.
According to Interim Executive Director Desiree Steffens, a successful candidate will have donated many hours of service to the organization of their choice for the betterment of the South Kitsap community.
The nominee does not have to be a Chamber member or be associated with a business organization. The nominee can be active in a church or synagogue, a youth organization, nonprofit organization, fraternal, educational or political organization.
Nomination forms are available at www.portorchard.com or you can send the candidates name, address, phone number, and email address and a list of their volunteer, professional and/or educational accomplishments and affiliations to: Man and Woman of the Year Committee, Port Orchard Chamber of Commerce, 1014 Bay St., Ste. 3, Port Orchard, WA 98366. Include at least two paragraphs on why you believe your candidate should be the Chamber’s Man or Woman of the Year.
The awards will be presented at the Port Orchard Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Meeting and Installation Banquet in October.
The Chamber selected Dr. Howard Minor as its first Man of the Year in 1963 and since then 50 men and women has been honored as Man and Woman of the Year. Brian Sauer and Kathleen Wilson received last year’s honor.
