Voting continues today for the 2015 Terrace and District Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards.

PUBLIC voting continues until tomorrow for the Terrace and District’s Chamber of Commerce’s 2015 Business Excellence Awards.

Members of the public are being encouraged to select one of three finalists in 12 categories with winners to be announced at a chamber gala Oct. 24, says chamber manager Erika Magnuson-Ford.

The three finalists were selected last week by last year’s winners from nominations submitted by members of the public.

“It went very well,” said Magnuson-Ford of the finalist selection.

She, along with members of the chamber’s board, spent last week contacting the finalists.

The 12 categories this year are community booster of the year, company of the year, contributor to the arts, customer service, employee of the year, executive of the year, home-based business, newsmaker of the year, renovation of the year, rookie of the year, tourism excellence and volunteer of the year.

The business excellence gala will be held at a new location this year – the banquet room of the Terrace Sportsplex with tickets on sale now, said Magnuson-Ford.

A new gala feature this year is the type of entertainment – Vancouver ventriloquist Norma McKnight.

And gala diamond sponsor LNG Canada will also make a presentation.

Magnuson-Ford did note that voting for the finalists is open for one week only, giving the chamber time to notify the winners in preparation for the gala.

“So that’s why we’re encouraging people to vote early on,” she said.
