Today’s deadline for business award nominations

Each year the Terrace and District Chamber of Commerce honours best in business

  • Sep. 25, 2015 7:00 a.m.

WITH a deadline of today, members of the public are being urged to nominate people and businesses for this year’s Terrace and District Chamber of Commerce business excellence awards.

“We have a number of entries but would still like more,” says chamber executive director Erika Magnuson-Ford.

There are 12 entries this year – 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.

Winners of last year’s awards meet early next week to choose the top three nominees in each category.

Once that’s been established, members of the public will have the chance to vote for the winner in each category, results of which will be released at a gala later in October.

New to the categories this year is renovation of the year, a move designed to recognize businesses which have updated and improved their appearance, said Magnuson-Ford.

Nominations for the 12 categories can be made by going to www.surveymonkey.com/r/2015TerraceBEA.

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

Also new this year is the type of entertainment – Vancouver ventriloquist Norma McKnight.

“Our diamond sponsor, LNG Canada will also make a presentation,” said Magnuson-Ford.

Tickets for the Oct. 24 gala go on sale next week.
