    Presidents' Business Achievement Award 
    Each year, the North Orange County Chamber solicits nominations from its membership for companies and individuals to be recognized for outstanding accomplishments in the areas of business and community involvement.

    Businesses, in the categories of small, medium, and large, are recognized for a number of key criteria, among them are the company's involvement in the community, outreach, ethical business practices, length of service in the community, innovation, leadership, environmental awareness, and ability to promote wellness and learning for employees. The Quality of Life Award recognizes non-profit organization that demonstrates service above self. The Hawkins Business Leadership Award—named for the late Linda Hawkins who was a business and community leader and dedicated chamber member—is annually awarded to an individual who has personally made significant contributions to the community.

    The awards are presented annually to the recipients during a Business Achievement Awards Dinner. The 2015 event will be held Wednesday, June 17, 5 p.m., at the Summit House Restaurant, located at 2000 E. Bastanchury Rd., in Fullerton. Click here to register.
