Annual Dinner: Let's build Aiken's future

The Aiken Chamber is making a list and checking it twice for its 97th Annual Dinner. Blueprints are done, planning is complete, materials are ordered, and anticipation is building for the sold out event on January 30.

The evening’s theme, “Building Aiken’s Future,” promises to set the tone for the Chamber’s 2015 program of work and beyond.

The theme marks the start of the “rubber meeting the road,” said Aiken Chamber President and CEO J. David Jameson. “We began with a blue ribbon panel to provide recommendations in 2013, completed a benchmarking study and endorsed a funding source for our school facilities in 2014. The groundwork is in place; now it’s time to start moving our community forward,” Jameson said.

“I see the commitment of so many – business, education, government, and civic leaders – who are ready to begin the building process. I see many positive outcomes in 2015, and I see a memorable evening on tap as we honor award winners, celebrate business, and dance the night away,” Jameson said.

Popular local band Anybody’s Guess will rock the USCA Convocation with a repertoire of dance music. Their playlist includes classic rock, beach, country, and blues.

The Chamber’s annual awards include the Woman and Man of the Year, and the Small and Large Business of the Year.
