For the second time in five years Organizing Expert Chris McKenry was recognized by the West Hollywood Chamber of Commerce when he recieved the Ambassador of the Year Award. The new London of West Hollywood was the setting for the Creative Business Awards on November 5, 2008.
“You can’t become an Ambassador without rubbing shoulders with the right people. No stranger to celebrities, at the age of 9 our honoree actually dined with the real Colonel Sanders,” joked Chamber Vice President Joan Henehan when presenting the award. A member since 2001, Chris served on the chamber’s board of directors from 2003-2007. During that time he lead the Design Committee for the chamber’s new office space.
Accepting the award, Chris stated “just as an organizer guides a client who is uncertain of how to recognize and part with their clutter, our chamber – the West Hollywood Chamber – guides each of us in successful strategies for working together and building a network to grow our business. In West Hollywood we know that getting to know each other and learning of our products and services creates valuable connections for future business. Thank you for letting me be a part of this organization and thank you for tonight’s honor.”
Chris also received the President’s Award at the Chamber’s Small Business Awards in June of 2003.
