SPRINGFIELD, Mass., June 2, 2022 –  The Springfield Regional Chamber will hold its Annual Meeting Celebration on June 15, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Sheraton Springfield. 


The evening, sponsored by Florence Bank with support from Health New England, will honor Evan Plotkin, president, and owner of NAI Samuel D. Plotkin and Associates, as the 2022 Springfield Regional Chamber Richard J. Moriarty Citizen of the Year. The event will also celebrate the Chamber’s accomplishments from the year, recognize the 2022 Springfield Leadership Institute graduates, honor outgoing President Nancy Creed, and welcome incoming Chamber President, Diana Szynal. Creed will officially step down from her role as President on June 30 but will remain in a part-time capacity to support Szynal, who will assume the role on July 5, to assist with the transition.  


“I am thrilled to be able to honor Evan Plotkin as the Richard J. Moriarty Citizen of the Year. It’s truly a pleasure to commemorate someone who exemplifies Rick Moriarty’s humility, his selflessness, and willingness to put the needs of others ahead of his own and acknowledge his unwavering dedication to the greater good. I’m also delighted to have the opportunity to celebrate the Springfield Leadership Institute class of 2022 in person for the first time in two years. While it will be bittersweet to say goodbye to members of the chamber, I am excited to introduce Diana to the wonderful community that has continually embraced and supported me throughout the years,” said Chamber president, Nancy F. Creed.  


A cocktail hour with heavy hors d’oeuvres will begin at 5:30 p.m., followed by the program, which will include a champagne toast. Reservations are $75 for members in advance and $85 for general admission. Reservations must be made by June 10 and can be made online at the Annual Meeting event page.
