Red Deer chamber accepting nominations for 2020 business awards

Deadline for submissions is July 24

The Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce is eager to celebrate local businesses.

This week, nominations opened for the 2020 Business of the Year Awards.

The awards are presented in five categories to exceptional businesses within the Red Deer area. All companies, chamber members and non-members, are eligible for recognition.

Nominations are being accepted in five categories: one to 10 employees, 11 to 20 employees, 21 or more employees, young entrepreneur and non-profit.

Nomination can be submitted online before July 24 at 4:30 p.m.

“The year 2020 will undoubtedly go down in Alberta’s history as one of the most difficult years ever to be in business,” said chamber CEO Rick More.

“It is for this reason we are excited to once again highlight and celebrate the resiliency, the adaptability, the ingenuity and the generosity of our local business community.”

The awards night will be held Oct. 21 at the RDC Arts Centre.
