The Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce is extending the deadline for nominations for the 2017 Business Excellence Awards.
Nominations were set to close Jan. 6 but the deadline has now been extended until Tuesday at 5 p.m.
“Nominations have been pouring in for most categories except for green business of the year and employer of the year, where we only have a few nominations,“ said Dan Rogers, chamber general manager.
“We’ve heard that nominations will be forthcoming in those categories but we also realize that people have been busy with Christmas and battling the winter weather so we felt it was best to allow a bit more time for nominations to come in.”
Nominations can be submitted at www.vernonchamber.ca
The Excellence Awards Gala which is presented by Valley First, is set for March 10. The finalists in each of the award categories will be announced at the nominees’ luncheon Feb. 7.
Tickets for both events will go on sale to the public later this month.
