CEDR Awards will be held on Thursday, April 6, 2023 at the Seaside Convention Center in Downtown Seaside.

Each award will recognize the businesses (large and small) as a whole, that have demonstrated remarkable achievement in these areas:

• Customer Service

• Economic Impact

• Innovation

• Community Impact

Businesses of all sizes will receive equal consideration. For purposes of the nominations we have made these categorizations:

• A new business is one that has been open for business for less than two years,

• A small business is one that has between 1-10 employees,

• A large business has more than 10 employees.

A special award that honors a founder of CEDR who also served as president of the CEDR Board for several years; the Skip Hauke Community Supporter Award will be given, which will recognize an organization of any type (nonprofit, service organization, government entity, or the like) that have gone above and beyond to support the economic vitality of the region.

Past CEDR award winners are a who’s who of businesses throughout the entire county, and prior winners can be nominated, too. This is the only countywide business recognition event, which is rotated around the county year-to-year and is an opportunity for business owners, elected officials, leaders, and citizens to get together to network and collectively celebrate the winners, and our diverse and robust economy.

The awards committee is working to have this event be as memorable as always for the winners and the attendees.

Advance registration for the event is required, so watch for registration information to be coming soon.

Next steps: nominate, nominate, nominate!
