2020 Icon Honors

The Central Penn Business Journal is COVID conscious and will be making educated decisions on whether events are virtual or in-person per CDC recommendations and state and county guidance. For now, all events for 2020 are moving forward as virtual but as soon as we can come back together in person to celebrate excellence we look forward to doing so.

The Icon Honors awards recognize business leaders over the age of 60 who have left an indelible mark in their fields, and whose integrity, vision and selfless service have lifted up the Central PA community.

Nominations for the 2020 Icon Honors awards are now open:
