The Red Deer Chamber of Commerce is accepting nominations for its annual Business of the Year Awards.
Awards will be presented in three categories: businesses with one to 10, 11 to 20, or more than 20 full-time-equivalent employees.
Businesses in the Red Deer area are eligible to apply, including those that do not belong to the Chamber.
“We invite individuals to take the time to submit a nomination for any business that they’ve recognized as having an impact on our community, excelling and showing innovation in their marketplace and contributing significant involvement in a volunteer capacity,” said Tim Creedon, the Chamber’s executive director.
Nominations can be made online at www.reddeerchamber.com/nominate or by using a form obtained from the Chamber office at 3017 Gaetz Ave., Red Deer.
The deadline for applications is Aug. 1. Winners will be announced at an awards gala on Oct. 22, during Small Business Week.
Last year, The Coverall Shop was named Business of the Year among nominees with one to 15 full-time employees, IFR Workwear Inc. won among businesses with 16 to 49 employees and Bilton Welding and Manufacturing Ltd. topped the field when it came to employers with 50 or more staff.
