ALBANY,  GA (WALB) –  The Albany-Dougherty Economic Development Commission is planning a celebration to honor area industries.

The Albany-Dougherty Industry Celebration Week will be held in May. It's an expansion of the EDC's Industry of the Year recognitions.

The purpose is to educate the public about the variety of industries in Dougherty county and honor their accomplishments. 

"This year we decided to turn it into more of a celebration event," said EDC President Ted Clem. "To recognize and appreciate companies for what they do here and their contributions to the economy, contributions to the local community in so many different ways."

There are several new award categories. All industries are eligible and encouraged to apply for the industry awards. The awards will be announced on May 5th at the Hilton Garden Inn.
