Comox Valley Record advertising consultant Liz Tribe is the latest recipient of the Minerva Award.

The award is presented annually to recognize a business member with the Comox Valley Women’s Business Network who gives freely of her experience, time and energy to the organization and its members.

This member is someone who has been instrumental in the growth of the Comox Valley Women’s Business Network, who has assisted others in the membership and who has been a leader in the organization.

The CVWBN describes Tribe as a fun, energetic, long-standing dedicated member who goes back as far as members can remember.

“She is not always in the limelight but has been very active behind the scenes,” the CVWBN says in a press release. “She has filled many positions on our board — president, secretary, membership director to name a few.

“This individual believes in helping the membership in ways that benefit the member not herself. She is not a business owner … yet understands business very well, as she has been a business owner in the past.

“This women has the energy of a 20-year-old, the wisdom of a 60-year-old and the dedication of a community leader. She believes in giving 110 per cent in anything that she agrees to volunteer for. She has been instrumental in getting the word out about who we are and what we all stand for.”

Jenny Deters, Gaetane Palardy and Karen Provost were also nominated.
