Time is running out to vote in the Fernie Community and Business Excellence Awards

There’s only a couple of weeks left to get your votes in for the 2012 Fernie Community and Business Excellence Awards. Nominations opened on September 4 and will close on October 9.

There are eight categories in total to vote for, ensuring that a widespread range of individuals and businesses are recognised for their contributions to Fernie. The awards include citizen of the year, entrepreneur of the year, young entrepreneur of the year, outstanding customer service, Fernie business of the year, Chamber business excellence, new business of the year, and the community impact award.

The nomination process is easy. Simply pick up a nomination form, or download one from the Fernie Chamber of Commerce website. Make sure to tell the Chamber why you think the individual or business you’re voting for deserves recognition, and don’t forget to include the nominee’s involvement and contributions within the community.

Nomination forms and boxes are available at several locations around town, including The Arts Station, City Hall, the Fernie Heritage Library, the Fernie Museum and Info Centre, The Free Press office, and the Aquatic Centre. Once a form is complete, it can be returned by email, to members@ferniechamber.com, by fax, at 250-423-3811, or by mail, to 102 Highway 3, Fernie, B.C., V0B 1M5.
