The largest event of the year, the Greater Marshall Chamber Annual Awards Banquet honors those in the chamber who have made a significant impact in the community. The event draws over 300 attendees and is a celebration of the accomplishments of the previous year. This year’s theme is “There’s No Place Like Home” as the Greater Marshall Chamber of Commerce features the special events, community success stories and vital economic developments in 2016 for Harrison County.
The 2017 Chamber Banquet will be held on March 7, 2017, at the Marshall Convention Center.
The featured speaker will be Dr. Dennis Swanberg.
“‘The Swan’ is a tremendously talented guy, a great friend of everyone at the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and always the first entertainer we try to book for any of our special national or regional events.”
“His humor is side-splitting hilarious. His impressions of Hollywood stars and politicians are spot-on. And always, his closing message is very appropriate for his audience and also very memorable. Dennis is quite simply the best!”
Les Steckel, Fellowship of Christian Athletes
Longtime NFL coach and President/CEO
