The Comox Valley Chamber awards ceremony will still have all the great the components the community has come to expect from this annual celebration with a few adjustments.
The awards ceremony will be streamed virtually on Jan. 30, 2021 to allow the entire community to view the event at home. To reflect our new format, the Chamber has put together gala boxes available for purchase, these will be delivered directly to people’s homes to be enjoyed while watching the awards. Gala box options range from a simple popcorn and a movie-style box, to a catered meal with wine including glasses and table decor. This year’s theme for the awards is “We’re still standing.”
“The idea for the theme came from Elton John’s song ‘I’m Still Standing.’ We thought it was a great fit for this year. What a community! We have stayed and are staying strong, we’re innovative and best of all, our businesses have come together and supported one another,” says Dianne Hawkins, CEO of the Comox Valley Chamber.
Adjustments were made to the award criteria to reflect 2020 and the challenges individuals and businesses have faced. Nominations for the Chamber Awards open on Sept. 15, 2020.
“We have adapted our awards criteria to reflect the challenges of 2020. For example, do you know an innovative business that has taken the COVID challenges and created opportunities,” says Hawkins. “If you do, the Chamber invites you to nominate them.”
