On January 26, more than 130 guests gathered for the Castle Pines Chamber of Commerce 2022 awards luncheon at Cielo at Castle Pines. Chamber members nominated winners in several categories: Large Business of the Year, Community Member of the Year, Nonprofit of the Year, Chamber Member of the Year, and Small Business of the Year. Not only were the award recipients surprised when their names were announced, but so was a Chamber leader who was recognized in a very special way.

Last fall, Chamber staff submitted a nomination for Executive Director Tina Hansen to be considered for the Association of Colorado Chambers of Commerce (ACCC) CEO of the year for 2022. While Hansen was not chosen, her peers honored her at the luncheon with a special award.

“Tina is a natural leader who encourages her team daily while guiding them to succeed,” said Events Director Whitney Shank, reading from the ACCC nomination letter. “Since day one, Tina has worked hard in all aspects of her job title and is consistently looking for ways to grow and improve the Castle Pines Chamber while maintaining its core values.”

Hansen said, “When the nomination letter that was created by my team was read, I was overwhelmed with gratitude while also thinking about how none of my personal successes would have been possible without my amazing team. I also thought a lot about my family and how supportive they have been (even on evenings and weekends), as I’ve worked to be the best leader for the Chamber possible.”

The Chamber’s annual gathering is a time for business owners and community leaders to reflect on successes and learn the plans to grow and expand those successes for the next year. It is also when the incoming and outgoing boards of directors are recognized, as well the award recipients in each category.
