2016 AGORA finalists named

2016 AGORA_Finalist_ButtonThe 31st annual AGORA Awards happen June 1 and, judging by the record number of nominations submitted, this year will be bigger and better than ever!

From the original field of 290 nominations AGORA judges narrowed the field to 34 awesome semi-finalists. After hours of serious reading and contemplation — and careful consideration in the areas of growth, marketing strategy, employee environment, customer service, response to adversity, strategic planning, creativity and contribution to the regional economy — our judges have whittled the entries down to 18 fantastic finalists.

2016 Finalists will interview with our panel of AGORA judges between March 21 and April 1, and winners will be selected in five categories – small and large charitable nonprofit, and small, medium and large business. Judges also award AGORAs for Community Service and Entrepreneurial Spirit. Winners will be announced at the AGORA Awards event, held in the luxurious Davenport Grand Hotel on June 1. Seating for this event is limited, and registration is open now … Visit our AGORA event page to secure your seat today!
