As with so many local events, the annual Women of Excellence Awards, presented by the Capital Region Chamber of Commerce, was both pushed back a few months and re-imagined.

Six outstanding women in the Capital Region were recognized.

Usually there would be 600 in attendance. However, Monday it was a small house, 35 in attendance - and more than 200 attending virtually.   

The award recognizes women who enrich the community through both the for profit and non-for-profit sectors.

There's always an award for "Distinguished Career." This year that was presented to Ladan Alomar, the former executive director of Centro Civico in Amsterdam.

NewsChannel 13’s Benita Zahn served as the emcee for the event.
