“The State of Your Kingsport Chamber Holiday Breakfast continues to grow each year and is a very popular event to end our year and celebrate our award-winning programs and the tremendous impact they make on our community,” said Miles Burdine, Kingsport Chamber president and CEO. “It’s also a great opportunity for us to say thank you and to show our appreciation to our many outstanding members, volunteers and sponsors who continue to support their Kingsport Chamber in numerous ways and who make Kingsport a great place to do business, visit, live and raise a family.”
The Kingsport Chamber’s most prestigious honor, the Lifetime Member Award, will be presented at the event.
Outgoing Kingsport Chamber Chair Lori Arnold, financial controller and human resources director with GSM, will showcase some of the organization’s many achievements from the past year. Incoming Kingsport Chamber Chair Eric Deaton, chief operating officer with Ballad Health, will preview the organization’s plans and goals for 2020.
