In the past few weeks, the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce has welcomed several new sponsors for its first Top 40 Under 40 Awards.

“Each business’ individual contribution – however large or small – will play a significant role in the success of this program,” says president and CEO Dianne Hawkins. “We are thankful for this support and thrilled that the community is on board with celebrating the achievements of young professionals in the Comox Valley.

“We are particularly grateful for the most generous support of our media sponsors: 97.3 The Eagle Radio and the Comox Valley Record. Their collective ‘gifts in kind’ in the form of advertising are playing an integral role in getting news about the Top 40 Under 40 Awards to the community.

“And we are pleased to announce that MNP LLP has come on board as a Platinum sponsor and has provided a cash donation that will be used to cover expenses related to bringing in a high profile keynote speaker.

“While sponsorship is important, we also need nominations,” Hawkins continued. “Please be aware that although the actual event will not be held until late October, the nomination deadline for the Top 40 Under 40 Awards is noon on Friday, September 7th. This earlier deadline provides us the time needed to sort through the nominations and have our judges choose the final honorees.”

To nominate someone you know:

• Stop by the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce office at 2040 Cliffe Ave. in Courtenay, to pick up a nomination form;
