The Trail and District Chamber of Commerce is asking community members to submit their nominations for the 2017 Business Excellence Awards - nomination deadline is Monday, Aug. 21.

Last chance to nominate your favourite local business

Award nominations for Trail and Greater Area businesses closes Aug. 21

Do you have a favourite business between Rossland, Trail and the Beaver Valley?

Then this week is your last chance to nominate it for a 2017 Business Excellence Award from the Trail and District Chamber of Commerce.

The nomination period officially closes on Monday, in the meantime, forms can be accessed online or from the chamber office on Bay Avenue.

Over 150 different businesses and business people were nominated in last year, membership manager Lindy Barta said.

“We are hoping to have even more this year.”

She says the Business Excellence Awards are about community, support, recognition and celebration.

“This is your chance to help us highlight the amazing businesses we have in the area and let us know who has wowed you.”

There’s 10 categories for the public and business community to consider from the 250-plus chamber members and any other non-chamber enterprise in Rossland, Warfield, Trail, Montrose and Fruitvale – provided they are operating with a valid business licence.

Winners are awarded during an evening gala called, “A Celebration of Success,” which is slated for Sept. 30 in the Fruitvale Memorial Hall.

Barta says the Top 5 nominees are chosen, interviewed, then clinched with a live vote during the gala.

This year’s soirée includes live music by Clinton Swanson, a silent auction, a premier chief serving a four-course meal, and safe rides home.
