Nominations for this year’s Federation Council area’s business awards have been extended, to Friday, May 25.
“We’ve had some enthusiastic businesses wanting to apply, to be part of this fabulous event. They don’t want to miss out,” Corowa Business Chamber Secretary Kay Fredericks explained to the Free Press.
Chamber President Mary Hetherington added: “We are committed to giving every business every opportunity to apply.”
Corowa Business Chamber committee members say it is an easy nomination form to complete, with about half a dozen questions each requiring about 100 words.
Three independent judges - not from this region - will decide the winners of the 10 categories after perusing their nomination forms.
John Bartlett of Corowa Heating & Cooling and Crackerjack Real Estate’s Allan Bartlett encourage businesses to nominate themselves, saying the event presents a good opportunity for businesses to promote or showcase their business.
“I congratulate Mary and Kay, and all other committee persons involved on their initiative in organising these awards,” Mulwala Water Ski Club CEO Peter Duncan said.
“Businesses should take advantage of the opportunity to nominate themselves, particularly being in a tourist town and shire. They should get behind it. It’s a great idea.”
The 10 business categories are:
* Outstanding Young Employee (aged 18-35)
* Outstanding Young Entrepreneur (aged 18-35)
* Outstanding Business Leader (aged 36+)
* Excellence in Social Enterprise
* Excellence in Innovation
* Excellence in Sustainability
* Excellence in Small Business (1-10 employees)
* Excellence in Small Business (11-20 employees)
* Excellence in Business (20+ employees)
* Excellence in Export.
There’s plenty to be gained by entering - promoting your business and the winning applicants having the chance to enter the NSW Business Chamber Regional State Awards. (For more information see, www.corowachamber.net).
