The Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce Annual awards have been celebrating local businesses and individuals since 1974 — almost 30 years.

This success of this local awards program is largely due to the incredible support from the local community and from sponsors.

The Chamber is now calling on the local community to get involved with nominations again this year. You do not have to be a Chamber member to nominate someone in our community for an award.

Award nominations have been streamlined this year and can be completed and submitted online.

Youth Leadership Award – Sponsored by Manatee Holdings;

President’s Merit Award – Sponsored by North Island College. This award is not open to nominations.

Nomination forms and award criteria can be found at www.comoxvalleychamber.com.

Nominations are open now through Nov. 22. Don’t miss out, get involved and nominate a business or individual you know who does exceptional work in our community today.

Please note, final award recipients are not chosen based on the number of nominations they receive but rather on the quality of the submission. Self-nominations are not permitted.

Tickets will be available in December for the annual Awards Gala on Jan. 25. The gala will feature a four-course gourmet dinner and an Academy Awards-style video presentation of final nominees and award recipients.
