“While a few nominated have stepped down, it is great to see that over 75 organizations have been nominated, many for the first time,” notes Chamber President Elyssa Lockhart.

“Several nominees have told me how honoured they are that community members have taken the time to put their names forward.”

Each nominee will now participate in an assessment process by a panel of community peers. This process will determine the winner of the award to be given out Oct. 19 at the Business Excellence Awards Gala. The black tie event held in the Mission Best Western Ballroom, will be a night of celebration of all nominees. Presented by Your Community Credit Unions, the Business Excellence Awards honours businesses and organizations that make a difference in the community.

“Award recipients represent the top executives, business leaders, thinkers, and strategists in our community,” she said.

“Their superior efforts encourage the sense that Mission supports, engages, and produces world-class talent, innovative products, dynamic companies and high-quality opportunities for employment.”

Join Elyssa and other leaders in Mission in celebrating these top organizations on Oct. 19. Tickets are available through the Chamber office or at MissionChamber.bc.ca Don’t forget to congratulate those who have been nominated or stop by to experience why.
