Rossland Business Awards: And the nominees are…

Roosland to celebrate business excellence awards. Nominations are now open.

Business excellence will be celebrated in Rossland for the second year in a row.

The Rossland Chamber of Commerce is presenting the Rossland Business Awards—a celebration of business excellence.

“We are hoping to showcase and bring together the business community of Rossland,” said chamber executive director Renee Clark. “The chamber would like to celebrate business excellence and acknowledge the achievements of our business community.”

The event was well received by the business community last year and the chamber was looking to carry on that momentum, explained Clark.

Anyone in the community can nominate a business or business person in Rossland. Selection criteria and nomination forms can be found on the Rossland Chamber of Commerce’s website.

There are five categories for the awards: business person of the year; business excellence; young entrepreneur; professional services; and customer service excellence.

“We are encouraging everyone in the community to get involved and show support for their favourite Rossland business,” continue Clark. “There are some amazing businesses and business people in our community and we would like to celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit.”

Nomination deadline is Oct. 15 at 4 p.m. Awards ceremony will be held at the Rossland Chamber of Commerce annual general meeting later on this year.

For more information on the awards, contact Renee at the Rossland Chamber of Commerce at 250-362-5666.
