Small Business of the Month Committee

Chairman Amy Schaake-Smith

The Small Business of the Month Committee is a group of men and women who recognize a Growth Association business with a monthly award for its outstanding efforts and leadership in the community. This committee solicits nominations from the RBGA membership. Once the nominations are received into the Growth Association, the business is sent an application to fill out. Once the applications are received, the committee reviews the applications and scores them to determine the monthly winner.

This committee meets on the second Wednesday at 8:00 a.m. every other month.
