Call for award nominations
Strathbogie Shire’s night of nights is on again on September 1, when local businesses are acknowledged for their achievements.
The event aims to create a basis to support and encourage business development, improvement and diversity and to help boost the region’s economic development.
But the event is not just about the best businesses in the shire. It’s also a great networking opportunity for business representatives to get together to hopefully work together in the future.
Nominations close on April 28 for the seven award categories:
Employee recognition award: recognises employee excellence and those who go above and beyond the call of duty.
New business of the year award: recognises innovation and determination required to start and grow a new business.
Tourism excellence award: recognises ongoing effort required to attract visitors to the shire.
Service excellence award: recognises businesses that deliver outstanding customer service.
Micro business excellence award: recognises business excellence in delivering quality products and services.
Medium business excellence award: recognises progression, determination, teamwork, resilience and sustainability of businesses.
Large business excellence award: open to businesses employing 21 or more people.
Strathbogie Shire Mayor Amanda McClaren said anyone could nominate any business in the shire and businesses could self-nominate.
‘‘There is an online nomination form on www.euroa.org.au/business-awards or a PDF form can be downloaded from the same website,’’ she said.
‘‘The judges are independent and do not have any business interest in the Strathbogie Shire region.’’
