We are celebrating our 60th Anniversary of the Gold Pan Awards: Diamonds Are Forever!

The Anchorage Chamber Gold Pan Awards is one of the organization's longest running civic programs. It was established in 1957 as Anchorage's number 1 premier business awards event.

For 60 years, Gold Pan Awards have been awarded to those who have shown business and entrepreneurial excellence, as well as a loyal commitment to Anchorage through community service.

The Anchorage Chamber of Commerce business community will come together on Friday, September 15th at the Denaina Civic and Convention Center to celebrate this year's finalists and recipients. Please join us in recognizing those who are outstanding in business excellence and community service!
