The Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce is looking to recognize businesses within our community with the 2017 Business Excellence Awards.
"This is our annual celebration that we have during small business week to recognize all the great businesses, groups and people that we have here in the community," stated Marley Henneigh, Chamber Services Coordinator.
There are six different awards that businesses can be nominated for.
"Small and Large Business of the Year, Most Promising New Business, The Arts, Culture and Community award, Diversity Leadership award and Business Professional of the Year," outlined Henneigh.
"The nice thing about all of our award categories is any awards that are nominated locally, we can also nominate them for the Alberta Business Awards. We've had a few local's win those awards, I know the Passion Play won one of those awards," she added.
So, how does someone nominate a business?
"We have forms printed off here at the Chamber of Commerce or you can download them from our website, drumhellerchamber.com or just shoot us an email at [email protected] and I will just email you one," explained Henneigh.
"The deadline to submit a nomination is August 25 and we will be having the fan voting again this year which will be September 4th until the 8th. People in the community will be able to go online and vote for their favourite choices in all categories."
The 2017 Business Excellence Awards will be on Wednesday, October 18.
