Recognizing Those Who Make Our Businesses & Community Work!

The Morton Grove Chamber of Commerce is working on on a brand new and innovative program to collectively recognize all those in the Morton Grove Business and the wider community with a new set of honors.  The “VIP of the Year” and “Business of the Year” programs will be modernized and expanded into something quite new.  We hope all of Morton Grove will find these changes and the people and companies that will be recognized as important to the community as we continue to move forward.  Our hope is to announce more about our ideas as the year and planning progress. We want to once again thank all the men and women who have gone the extra mile over the years, those recognized by having won the VIP award in the past, and those who quietly worked so hard who have not yet been recognized…yet! Look for more information in the coming months and please continue to visit our Facebook Page to learn more about what is happening in the Chamber on a weekly basis.
