Macleay Valley Business Awards Special Announcement

Due to the current circumstances with COVID-19 (following Government Advisories), the Macleay Valley Business Chamber Executive Committee have decided that it will be in our community’s best interest to postpone this year’s Business Awards program. This includes the cancellation of our Launch event that was scheduled to be held on April 1st 2020.

Our aim is to hold the Awards in the latter half of 2020. As the Mid North Coast and NSW Business Awards have been cancelled for this year, entrants will be recognised at a local level.

“The Macleay Valley Business Chamber recognises the trials that our local business community has faced in the last 12 months. While it has been a difficult time, there is so much to celebrate. We have a wide array of fantastic local businesses who deserve recognition for all that they do within our community.” said Lachlan Townsend, Awards Sponsorship Co-ordinator and Chamber representative.

“We want to celebrate our community with this year’s event and deliver an altered version of the MVBA, with a great local twist.” Lachlan added. Any queries regarding the Awards should be directed to the Sponsorship Co-Ordinator Lachy Townsend on 0419 403 695.

The Chamber also reminds local business that they are here to support local business. Businesses are encouraged to reach out to Chamber, who are eager to assist where they can. The Macleay Valley Chamber can be contacted via email:

Please note the Macleay Valley Business Awards will be postponed to later in 2020 with updates and revised key dates posted here at that time.
