Chamber Announces Livingston Parish 2016 Businesses of the Year
The Livingston Parish Chamber of Commerce 2016 Annual Business of the Year award winners were recognized at the Annual Meeting & Awards Luncheon on January 25, 2017. The recipients stood out for their outstanding businesses and their impact on both the parish economy and community.
Nominees and applicants were sent out of state for judging by an independent panel. The awards were presented to the winners with 200 plus guests in attendance highlighting the biggest business event of the new year.
“The awards add even more significance following the flood. We all know our business community was completely shaken up and by the floods of 2016. We are especially proud this year to recognize the resilience of the businesses here. Three of the businesses awarded experienced flooding to their property directly,” noted Brian Abels, 2016 Chairman of the Board.
