The Greater Mission Chamber of Commerce will hold its annual membership banquet on Thursday, Oct. 16 at Mario’s Banquet and Conference Center, 1716 E. Griffin Parkway in Mission.
The chamber will take this opportunity to introduce the 2014-15 board of directors to the members and community and present awards for Business of the Year, Business Leader of the Year and Partner of the Year.
Navin Buxani, director of operations of Holiday Inn Express, will be introduced as the new chairman of the board, taking the reins from current Chairman Rob Neagle, general manager of Main Event Entertainment.
“Every year, the Chamber comes together with the business community at its annual meeting to celebrate the previous year’s accomplishments and outline plans for the new year,” said George Myers, president & CEO of the Mission Chamber. “We have made great strides in 2014, and we look forward to accelerating the momentum of key initiatives that have established.”
In addition, the Progress Times will present the annual citizens awards at the banquet, announcing this year’s selections for Mr. Mission, First Lady of Mission, Man of the Year and Woman of the Year. The Progress Times and the Mission Chamber of Commerce have partnered together to have the citizens awards presented at the chamber’s annual membership banquet for the past nine years.
“We truly appreciate the excellent job George Myers and the chamber staff does each year putting together the annual banquet and allowing us to be a part of that as we present the citizens awards,” said Jim Brunson, publisher of the Progress Times.
The event will take place from 6-9 p.m., and guests will be treated to a Spanish musical performance during dinner as well as a special Spanish dance performance by Sonia Chapa.
