Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce seeks online nominations for 2019 business awards

The Greater Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce will recognize leaders and achievers with the 19th annual Nanaimo Business Awards gala.

The celebration happens at the Port Theatre April 11 to honour individuals, businesses and non-profit organizations that have contributed to the fabric and growth of Nanaimo’s economy.

Nanaimo’s movers and shakers being honoured will be chosen from nominations and online nominating in 22 categories is open to the public until Feb. 14. Online voting for finalists in each of the categories begins Feb. 15.

Nominees do not have to be members of the chamber of commerce and previous finalists and winners are invited back.

The Nanaimo Business Awards honour entrepreneurship as well as longevity in business and instills pride-of-place in the local business community.

“This is the 19th annual celebration of business excellence in the Nanaimo business community,” said Kim Smythe, Nanaimo chamber CEO, in a press release. “We hope to see a great volume and variety of online nominations and votes and excellent attendance at the Port Theatre event to congratulate our friends and neighbours who invest so much in their business lives.”
