Truckee Chamber Awards Event Brings Community Together

Truckee Chamber Awards Event Brings Community Together

September 12, 2022

The Truckee Chamber of Commerce presented awards to seven winners at its 69th Annual Awards Event, held September 9th at the Truckee Tahoe Airport in Hangar N-01.

“It was a very special evening,” said Chamber President/CEO Lynn Saunders. “We modeled it after last year’s awards event because we received so much positive feedback about the more casual, relaxed atmosphere,” explained Saunders. “This is the one time each year that the business community gets together to celebrate Truckee, acknowledge and honor innovation, entrepreneurs, creativity, resilience, stewardship, rising stars and the special Chairman’s Award. It is an honor for these businesses, individuals and organizations to be recognized publicly at this event by the Chamber and their community.”

Nominees are submitted by Chamber members. The Chamber Board of Directors reviews all the nominations and through thoughtful and deliberate discussions selects three finalists and a winner in each category. Below is the list of 2022 winners:

Entrepreneur Award: Jeff Brown, Tahoe Mountain Realty

Resilient Business Award: Tahoe Mountain Fitness
