Paul Janos Community Impact Award

The Copley Community Chamber of Commerce is looking forward to again presenting one worthy resident with the Paul Janos Community Impact Award during Copley Heritage Days in 2023! This award was created in 2022 in honor of Paul Janos, President of the Copley Chamber’s Board of Trustees from 2016 through 2020, who lost his battle with cancer in 2020.

Paul’s passions for community, service, and lifting up the underdog were evident to all who knew him, and his impact on the Chamber itself was immeasurable. Every community is supported by people like Paul, people with the natural inclination to infuse all they do with an intent to improve the lives of others, and Copley is no exception. The Chamber would like to recognize those people in appreciation for the impact of their service and in honor of Paul’s.
