• Customer First – Their service is above and beyond

• Community builder – A community organization that strives to make a difference for all.

“I am excited about the new awards and how they reflect our community,” said Sean Melia, chamber president. “With the change of the event to June 8 and the updated judging process time is tight, so I encourage everyone to nominate a star performer today.

The new judging process includes online voting for nominees, clearer criteria and top three judging visits. The gala that will recognize recipients will be held on Saturday, June 8.

Nominations will be accepted until midnight on April 30. Submission is a quick process that can be done online at www.MissionChamber.bc.ca or can be submitted in person to the chamber office at 34033 Lougheed Hwy.
