The Eighteenth Annual Chambers of Commerce Coalition Outstanding Member of the Year Awards Reception, held at the Meadowbrook Club in Port Jefferson Station, was a whopping success. Due in part to its founder and Director Barbara Ransome, who has done a phenomenal job, the event has grown tremendously since its inception in 1992. The event honored the outstanding member of the year nominated by each individual chamber. The Brookhaven Coalition represents the 20 chambers in the Town of Brookhaven whose mission is to support the businesses and professionals of chamber members and to give them one strong voice on issues pertinent to all. Sponsored by TD Bank the over 200 guests – the most ever- celebrated the exceptional work tirelessly performed by the honorees throughout the past year.
