AUBURN, IN - Nominations for the Chamber’s Duesy Awards are open now through Wednesday, September 9. The community is invited to nominate their favorite business, professional, educator, or nonprofit. The nomination form is available online at dekalbchamberpartnership.com/duesys.

Each year the DeKalb Chamber Partnership recognizes area businesses, leaders, and educators with the DeKalb Awards for Excellence in Business Community and Education – also known as the Duesy’s.
