BusinessWest Seeks Nominations for Difference Makers Class of 2024

SPRINGFIELD  BusinessWest is pleased to announce it is now accepting nominations for its Difference Makers class of 2024.

This program, initiated in 2009, is a celebration of individuals, groups, organizations, and families that are positively impacting the Pioneer Valley and are, as the name suggests, making a difference in this region. As previous classes have shown, there are many ways to do this: through work within the community on one or many initiatives to improve quality of life; through success in business, public service, or education; through contributions that inspire others to get involved; through imaginative efforts to help solve one or more societal issues; or through a combination of the above.

Nominations for the class of 2024 are due December 8, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. We encourage you to get involved and help recognize someone you consider to be a Difference Maker in the community we call Western Mass.

Nominations can be submitted at:

For more information, call Melissa Hallock, Marketing and Events director, at (413) 781-8600, ext. 100, or email
