Each year the Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce Agri-Business Division recognizes a Farm Family of the Year and an Agri-Business Citizen(s) of the Year. A subcommittee of the Agri-Business Division nominates deserving families and agri-business citizens to be considered for the award and the voting members of the Agri-Business Council choose the winners.
For 2017, the Chamber is honoring the Sweeter Family of Worthing, S.D., as the Farm Family of the Year. Evan Nolte, who will soon retire from his position as President & CEO of the Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce, is the Agri-Business Citizen of the Year. Both the Sweeters and Nolte will be recognized at the Mayor´s Round-Up & Sale of Champions at the Sioux Empire Farm Show and at the Agri-Business Division Annual Meeting in the spring. The Farm Family also shares their expertise by participating in the Chamber´s Agri-Business Division Council for a year. . .
The start of a new year is a natural time to make plans and set goals. We take stock of where we are and where we want to be in the future. Then, we try to figure out how we are going to get there.
Sioux Falls is successful and growing because we have community-minded leaders who are continually making plans for the future in an effort to build our economic health and quality of life. Your membership in the Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce is one way that you play a role in strengthening our already strong foundation.
Agriculture is South Dakota´s largest industry and is still a mainstay in the Sioux Falls area. This is an industry that has evolved significantly in recent decades, using technology. . .
