Industry Roundtable

The Industry Roundtable is a group of manufacturers, distributors and processors who meet quarterly to share information, discuss trends and conduct plant tours. Membership is limited to CEOs and industry managers by invitation only.

Annually, the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce presents Industry Appreciation Awards honoring area existing industry leaders and recognizing their economic impact on the community, corporate responsibility and workforce excellence.

Industry of the Year Nominations are encouraged if you know a deserving industry.

Industry of the Year Applications are open to local manufacturers, processors and distributors.
