Welcome to Awards Season! And it’s not the Emmys or Tonys either – it’s the Greater Westside’s Key Business Awards!! There are 11 categories to nominate your favourite business or fellow GWBOT member to recognize them for their outstanding business achievements this past year. Click here for the Nomination Form. Quick Tip: It’s about QUALITY not QUANTITY of nominations a company receives. One company can be nominated for a number of categories but they don’t need to have 100 nominations for one category. Members and non members can be nominated – this is about recognizing Westside businesses!
A BIT ABOUT THE PROCESS: Nominees are contacted by the Nominations Committee and emailed a short questionnaire that will give the Judging Committee a better insight into the company and its achievements. A site visit by the Judging Committee takes place to give them a better “feel” of the business. Three finalists are determined in each category and they will be recognized at the Awards Finalist Reception, October 25. Each finalist receives one complimentary ticket to the reception. Award winners will be announced at the Gala, November 2.
Finalist Reception: October 25 at Volcanic Hills Winery, tickets are $20, please call Heather at 250-768-3378 to purchase tickets.
Key Business Awards Gala: November 2 at 19 Restaurant, Two Eagles Golf Course tickets are $80, please call Heather at to purchase tickets.
