The Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce Annual Meeting and Business Celebration is our largest event with over 700 of our area's top business leaders in attendance. The program included a celebration of another year of successes for our members, honors our dedicated volunteers and serves as a kickoff for 2020.
Local businesses and citizens were recognized with the Chamber's annual awards including Business of the Year, Small Business of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Non-Profit of the Year, Chamber Volunteer of the Year and more.
2019 Board Chair Daniel Jones, Strawberry Hills Pharmacy, passed the gavel to 2020 Board Chair Chad Beyer, i5 design group. The 2019 and 2020 officers and Board Members were also recognized.
Our featured speaker was Libby Spears. Libby has a long rap sheet for breaking rules, challenging the status quo and evangelizing the importance of communications and relationships. While her troublemaking tendencies might not have served her as well as a young child in school, she has honed it into her greatest strengths of storytelling and humor. A native of Lubbock, Texas, her first paid gig as a speaker came at an early age of seven when she was invited to tell a joke at an in-studio taping of a game show. When she was done, her life was changed forever. Today she focuses on three things: to educate, liberate and entertain every person she encounters.
