This October marks the 22nd Annual Business Awards sponsored by Libro Credit Union. This year we are asking you to nominate a business in the community for one of the prestigious Business Excellence Awards. Each year with the assistance of Libro and the individual award sponsors we recognize and showcase individuals and businesses for achieving excellence in their fields. As your Chamber, we strive to make sure that we are doing everything we can for our members for the good of our region. Please take a moment to look at your nomination categories in the flyer insert and be sure to submit the name of a worthy business or individual. Make sure to join us for a wonderful evening as we recognize the nominees and winners at the World Series of Business. The nominations are due by September 7th with the award ceremony on Wednesday October 12th at the Leamington Portuguese Club. Please send your nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by the Chamber at 318 Erie Street South and drop off your nomination. Be sure to join us at Aleksander Estate Winery on Thursday September 15th as we announce the nominees.
Our Christmas Business Expo will be held on Thursday December 1st at Best Western Plus. This year we will be having the expo take place from 9am –1pm with a few guest speakers available to address our business community.
As I have been lucky to attend the Chamber Executive conference, we are constantly getting ideas on how to make our Chamber a vibrant Chamber. One of the ideas that was passed around was a Chamber Excursion. Be sure to keep posted as we will be doing a leisure Chamber Trip to Tuscany Italy on May 1st in 2017. There will be a Business after 5 at CAA on Wednesday November 23rd –come on out and see what this is all about.
As we gear up for a busy fall be sure to remember that the Leamington District Chamber of Commerce continues to improve, adjust and create and set goals to ensure the success of our organization and our business community.
