About Celebration of Leadership Awards 
Boulder's robust, innovation-driven economy didn't happen by accident. It was forged by inspired business and community leaders from diverse industries, nonprofits and public institutions. Turning imagination into invention, invention into reality. And combining forces in dynamic collaboration through linchpin organizations like the Boulder Chamber.

For four decades, the Chamber has brought these leaders and groups together to honor those who have helped promote our strong economic and social progress at its annual Celebration of Leadership. Join us at the Dairy Arts Center to hear this year's honorees' inspirational stories. And gain exclusive insights into the Chamber's action plans for 2023 as we continue to work with bold leaders and partner organizations in our ongoing journey to "Build Community Through Business".
