Ambassasdor of the Year - Michelle Colaizzi
Champion Award (in Honor of Carolyn Burtard) - Tim & Michelle Oddo
Selected by the Northwest Douglas County Chamber & EDC Team
We lost Carolyn Burtard in 2020 after her battle with cancer. Carolyn was a treasured member and volunteer, and we have created an award in her honor. She was a member of our organization for 16 years. For almost all those 16 years she volunteered for our organization, recruited new members, and was a part of every group that helps shape the vision and mission of our Chamber & EDC. She served as an Ambassador, sat on our Board of Directors, Women’s Business Alliance Committee, and numerous sub-committees for events and programs. She also gave her time and financial support to numerous other non-profits in the community serving on boards and committees and supporting fundraising events.
This award is presented to a Chamber & EDC member who has proactively demonstrated extraordinary enthusiasm for our organization through volunteerism, participation in Chamber & EDC activities and/or committees. This nominee shall also have acted as a notably positive member for our Chamber & EDC through interactions with the public and other members. This individual is a champion for the community, involved in serving, volunteering, and inspires community involvement in others.
