Chamber's Choice Awards Gala

Our Annual Awards Gala is so much more than just another fun event. It is an opportunity to recognize those in our community who go above and beyond and help to make Sitka such a wonderful place to live. It is on this evening that we announce the winners of the prestigious Cossack Cap Award, the Business of the Year Award and the New Business of the Year Award. The support that the Sitka Chamber receives on this important night helps us to "promote, support and facilitate commerce and economic growth in the community” throughout the year.

2017 An Alaskan Wonderland

Join us for an evening of elegance at the 2017 Annual Chamber’s Choice Awards Gala. Immerse yourself in the allure of Alaska’s natural beauty, and share in the awe and wonder felt by many when they first experience our state.  Be ready to see the Harrigan Centennial Hall shimmer and glow on Saturday, January 28th!

Brought to you by Southeast Regional Health Consortium (Diamond Sponsor) and Silver Bay Seafoods (Platinum Sponsor).

Diamond Sponsor

SEARHC is a non-profit tribal health consortium of 18 Native communities which serves the health interests of the Tlingit, Haida, Tsimshian, and other Native people of Southeast Alaska. We are one of the oldest and largest Native-run health organizations in the nation.

SEARHC was established in 1975 under the provisions of the Indian Self-Determination Act. The intent of this legislation was to have Indian Health Service programs and facilities turned over to tribal management. Our contracting with IHS began in 1976 when we took over management of the Community Health Aides Program. In 1982, we took over operation of the IHS Juneau clinic and in 1986 we took over operation of Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital.

Platinum Sponsor

Silver Bay Seafoods is an integrated processor of frozen, headed and gutted salmon for domestic and export markets. They began in 2007 as a single salmon processing facility in Sitka, Alaska. Today, Silver Bay is one of the largest seafoods companies in Alaska, operating five domestic processing facilities throughout Alaska and the West Coast.

Silver Bay's primary strength is in its combination of having a state of the art processing plant and favorable logistics to support its operations; competent management and key personnel; an established fish buying system; and ownership by fishermen who represent over 80% of the committed fishing effort.
