The Siouxland Chamber of Commerce Annual
Dinner, held each fall, is one of the largest annual Chamber gatherings in the Midwest. This past year, over 1,450 Siouxland businesses and business professionals from the tri-state area attended.
The Siouxland Chamber boasts a distinguished list of guest speakers at the annual meeting, including Mary Matalin and James Carville, Tim Russert, Judge Robert Bork, John Stossel, William Bennett, Dave Berry, Thomas Friedman, George Stephanopoulos and General H. Norman Schwarzkov, just to name a few. The keynote speaker at the 2016 Annual Dinner was Justice Alan Page – Minnesota State Supreme Court Justice and NFL MVP & Hall of Fame Inductee.
Each year the Chamber recognizes the accomplishments of the past board members and introduces the incoming board. One highlight of the evening is the presentation of the W. Edwards Deming Business Leadership and Entrepreneurial Excellence Award to a Siouxland businessperson in acknowledgment of outstanding contributions to the business community. The 2016 recipient of the award was Richard Waller.
