BUSI­NESS Ex­cel­lence Awards night is an op­por­tu­nity to recog­nise and ap­pre­ci­ate the in­valu­able role busi­ness plays in our com­mu­nity.

Satur­day Oc­to­ber, 28 marks the 21st Busi­ness Ex­cel­lence Awards which will be held at the Dalby Show­grounds cour­tesy of the Dalby Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try.

With 20 awards given out on the night, 12 of which were nom­i­nated for by the pub­lic, the Cham­ber seeks to cel­e­brate in­di­vid­ual mem­bers and groups within the com­mu­nity who have made a dif­fer­ence in lo­cal busi­ness.

Tourism and Ac­com­mo­da­tion, Man­u­fac­tur­ing, Ru­ral Op­er­a­tions, Agri­cul­tural Ser­vices and Busi­ness of the Year are just some of the awards up for grabs on the night - which will mean for a hotly con­tested event with over 70 well-es­tab­lished busi­ness’ nom­i­na­tions sub­mit­ted over 14 cat­e­gories.

The award sys­tem is a metic­u­lous one, of which is cen­tred around the Aus­tralian Busi­ness Ex­cel­lence Frame­work.

The frame­work as­sesses busi­nesses upon their lead­er­ship, strat­egy and plan­ning, peo­ple, in­for­ma­tion and knowl­edge, safety, ser­vice de­liv­ery, prod­uct qual­ity and bot­tom-line re­sults.

Pres­i­dent of the Dalby Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try Ro­han May will be at­tend­ing the event.

“There will be a judg­ing panel ex­ter­nal to Dalby who will visit the busi­nesses, talk to the own­ers and make a de­ci­sion based on all the in­for­ma­tion they gather,” Mr May said.

“With the dif­fi­cult times Dalby has ex­pe­ri­enced of late, par­tic­u­larly in the agri­cul­tural in­dus­try, it’s im­por­tant to cel­e­brate suc­cess­ful busi­nesses in the com­mu­nity.”

Be­ing the long­est run­ning Busi­ness Ex­cel­lence Awards in South-East Queens­land, there is a cer­tain level of pres­tige at­tached to the night.

Nom­i­na­tions for the BEA are now closed how­ever for those want­ing to at­tend, book­ings can be made on the Dalby Cham­ber of Com­merce and In­dus­try web­site or through the Cham­ber of­fice.
