For more than three decades, the Greater Flagstaff Chamber has presented the ATHENA Award to a local businesswoman who has achieved excellence in her field, served the community and assisted other women in the attainment of their goals. The Young Professional Award was added in 2007, and recognized women who are emerging business leaders and clearly serves as a role model for young women both personally and professionally. The awards are presented every February at the Chamber's Annual Meeting luncheon, one of Flagstaff's most highly-anticipated business gatherings.
