Business Hall of Fame Nominations Sought

Nominations are currently being sought for inductees into the 2024 class of the Salina
Business Hall of Fame.

The Salina Area Chamber of Commerce established the Salina Business Hall of Fame
in 2005 to honor prominent business leaders both past and present, which have made extraordinary contributions to Salina, earned the respect of the Salina community, and exemplified the Free Enterprise
System. Categories for nominations include:
• Pioneer Award – 1858 – 1945
• Historic Award – 1946-1999
• Contemporary Award – 2000-present

“The Business Hall of Fame honors the achievements of Salinans who have made outstanding contributions to the development and enhancement of Salina’s business climate and economic development, as well as have created a lasting impact to the Salina community overall,” stated Renee Duxler, president and CEO of the Salina Area Chamber of Commerce. “It’s our way of recognizing and maintaining the stories of the individuals who have helped make Salina the community it is today.”

According to the Chamber, nominations can be made by both Chamber members and the general public. Nominees will be considered
on the basis of several criteria which include business excellence, entrepreneurial spirit, courageous thinking and actions, inspiring leadership, community impact, positive role model, enduring accomplishments, and
local influence. Individuals nominated in previous years will be considered again this year.
