The 2016 Macleay Valley Business Awards are less than a month away and voting has now opened with a record 55 businesses nominated this year.
Supported by Presenting Partner Macleay Valley Coastal Holiday Parks (MVCHP), the awards recognise business excellence across 14 categories.
MVCHP Marketing Manager Danielle Cooney says while businesses who enter the judged awards have to go through a stringent submission process with independent judging, the business choice and people’s choice awards give the locals an opportunity to show their appreciation for their favourite local business.
“You can vote in the awards online at the Macleay Valley Business Chamber website and we encourage everyone to support the awards by participating in the voting process” Ms Cooney said.
Voting for the Business Choice Awards are open to all businesses and you can cast your vote at www.macleaybusinesschamber.com.au.
As per previous years, voting for the People’s Choice are open to all members of the community and can be done using the voting coupon available in The Macleay Argus.
Macleay Valley Business Chamber President Gary Scott says the business awards highlight the contributions made by local businesses to the lifestyle and economy of the Macleay Valley.
“The awards are a great opportunity to show our appreciation and acknowledge the achievements of businesses in our valley”, said Mr Scott.
All nominated businesses will be invited to a Gala Awards night on Saturday 27 August at Kempsey Macleay RSL Club where the winners will be announced.
Voting closes on 12 August 2016 at 11.59pm.
