An evening honoring outstanding examples of philanthropic giving and citizenship.

For more than 25 years, the Chamber has recognized businesses that invest in the economic, cultural and humanitarian advancement of the Rensselaer County region by bestowing the Van Rensselaer Awards and the Edward H. "Ebbie" Pattison Citizenship Award, recognizing an individual who demonstrates good citizenship and a community-centered spirit.

Siena College is the recipient of the Van Rensselaer Corporate Award. An independent, coeducational liberal arts college, Siena offers four-year educational degrees with an immersive commitment to service. It is the only higher-education institution in the state to offer the Bonner Service Leaders Program and the college’s Franciscan tradition ensures community service is infused into the Siena Saints’ experience. From feeding the hungry in Philadelphia, caring for the homeless in Boston or building houses in Jamaica, students, staff and alumni have a lasting impact on communities. 

The Troy Savings Bank Music Hall is the recipient of the Van Rensselaer Small Business Award. Founded in the  1870s as a gift to the community, today’s music hall perpetuates its mission through ongoing restoration and  renovation projects, moving towards the goal of developing its full potential. Named a National Historic Landmark in 1989, the concert and performance space is renowned for its acoustics and is in use more than 150 days a year. 

Paula Stopera is the recipient of the Edward H. Pattison Citizenship Award. Paula’s career at CAP COM Federal  Credit Union spanned nearly 40 years before her retirement in May. During her 15-year tenure as president and CEO, she oversaw more than $1.5 billion in growth, increasing membership to 140,000 individuals. One of Paula’s greatest achievements was establishing the CAP COM Cares Foundation, which has donated nearly $4 million and more than 30,000 volunteer hours to benefit underprivileged individuals and families. CAP COM Cares recently established a Legacy Scholarship in Paula’s name.
