Rocklin Chamber Honors Thunder Valley GM
ROCKLIN, CA - On Friday, Dec. 13 the Rocklin Area Chamber of Commerce honored Thunder Valley Casino Resort General Manager Dawn Clayton as the 2013 Businesswoman of the Year during the organization's Business Excellence Awards Banquet.
"It is a tremendous honor to be recognized as the 2013 Businesswoman of the Year," said Clayton. "I have been very privileged to be a member of the Rocklin Chamber of Commerce for three years. Without the United Auburn Indian Community's commitment to Placer County and the dedication of Thunder Valley's outstanding Team Members, this award would not be possible."
Clayton has been an active member of the Rocklin Chamber of Commerce for many years, currently serving as Vice Chair for 2013.
The "Business Person of the Year" award is given each year to an individual "whose leadership contributed significantly to the success of a business or organization in the Rocklin Area/Placer County."
"We are thrilled to recognize Dawn as our newest Businesswoman of the Year," said Robin Trimble, CEO of Rocklin Area Chamber of Commerce. "I have been fortunate to work with Dawn for several years and can certainly attest that she is a proven business leader and a dedicated Board Member of our Chamber. We are privileged to work closely with Dawn and thankful for Thunder Valley's investment in Placer County, specifically Rocklin."
The Business Excellence Awards have been honoring Rocklin Chamber members and business leaders since 2006. Each year, nominations are solicited and received for a variety of business categories. Nominations for this award were voted on by the Rocklin Chamber Board of Directors, Ambassadors, staff and selected community leaders.
