The Chamber Bright Stars for 2019 were recognized on Tuesday, October 22nd at the semi-annual Chamber Leadership meeting and twelfth annual Chamber Bright Star Awards presentation of the Northern Ohio Area Chambers of Commerce (NOACC) at LaCentre Conference and Banquet Facility located in Westlake, Ohio.
About 40 chambers of commerce across northern Ohio recognized a volunteer from their chamber as their “Bright Star, and who has “made a significant impact on the chamber through membership, retention, sponsorship, economic development, operations and/or education.” Each Bright Star is an active chamber member and is likely to be an unsung hero or a dedicated behind-the-scenes volunteer.
Jill Ludwig with the City of Brooklyn and the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce Bright Star 2019, accepted her plaque, trophy and pin from Cindy Holzheimer, NOACC Executive Director and John Sobolewski, NOACC Board Chairman and Executive Director of the Fairview Park, North Coast, North Olmsted, West Shore Chambers. Jill Ludwig has been integral to the success of our annual community event, Picnic in the Park. She volunteers at the event and is an important liaison between the Chamber and the City.
These volunteers represent a wide range of involvement with their respective chambers, some having been a member and or officer or committee chairman for 20+ years and some being newly involved but each of whom has given freely of his/her time, working hard for their chambers without any expectations.
This is the twelfth year for the Chamber Bright Star Awards, and again is giving an opportunity to recognize these volunteers among their peer groups, as chamber representatives, board members and spouses will also be in attendance.
