Madison customers can now nominate their favorite local employees to receive the annual Extra Mile Award.

The award recognizes local workers who provide outstanding customer service, according to the Madison Area Chamber of Commerce, which hands out this honor each year. 

Unlike other Chamber awards, the Extra Mile Award is selected by votes from Madison customers rather than by the Chamber Board of Directors. Nominations can be made this year through Tuesday, June 5.

Nominations should contain the nominee’s name and place of business. The ballot should also include the submitter’s contact information and the reason for nomination. 

Ballots can be emailed to Madison Chamber executive director Karen Giambra at, faxed to 973-822-0451 or mailed to Madison Area Chamber of Commerce, P.O. Box 152, Madison, NJ 07940.  

All mail-in nominations must be postmarked by June 5 to be considered.

Winners will be invited to the Chamber’s annual awards dinner on Tuesday, June 12 at Brooklake Country Club in Florham Park. Chamber members will choose the “best written” nomination ballots and read them aloud at the awards dinner, Morris said.
