Nominations accepted for business awards

Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce preparing for next year’s celebration

The Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce has opened the nominations for the 2017 Business Excellence Awards.

Coming off a successful event re-structuring in 2016, including an outstanding awards night held this past February, the organizers of this year’s event are excited to see even more local participation in the awards.

To begin they have opened the nomination process, as of May 1, to the community, encouraging members to vote for their favourite business in one of six categories.

All nominations will be announced in early September and the community will have their chance to vote on the nominees in November.

“This is a year-long planning process to get the nominations, celebrate the nominees, complete the judging and then host the final awards night,” said events committee chair, Alana Martens.

“We are very excited to bring this event back this year and continue to make improvements to ensure this event is a success for the entire community.”

The events committee is busy putting together the details for the Business Excellence nominees luncheon and final gala and welcome members to join this planning committee and be a part of creating the biggest night in business in Mission.
