    The Salem Chamber of Commerce's 100th Annual Celebrate Salem Awards Dinner will take place in the beautiful Atrium of the Peabody Essex Museum on the evening of Wednesday, April 24, 2024. 

    The program of the evening will include the presentation of the Celebrate Salem Awards in 7 categories.  The process for the nominations and selection of winners is a two phase process. In the first period businesses and people were nominated, after which the Awards Committee selected 6 nominees per category. In the second phase the voting, open to both businesses and residents, will take place to select the winners. 

    The theme for this year's dinner is based on the PEM exhibition "Our Time on Earth", on view February 19 through June 9, 2024.
