“Busi­ness Awards are a fabulous op­por­tu­nity for busi­nesses to stand back, take a look at their day to day run­ning, the ever chang­ing wider com­mer­cial pic­ture, the vi­sion they send to the pub­lic, op­por­tu­ni­ties for new skills, and ways to ex­tend their mar­ket and re­fresh them­selves,” Corowa Busi­ness Cham­ber Sec­re­tary Kay Fred­er­icks told the Yar­ra­wonga Chron­i­cle.

“We all fall into habit and rou­tine, get a bit stale and jaded and so this is an op­por­tu­nity to re­fresh and rein­vig­o­rate and cel­e­brate.”

Cham­ber Pres­i­dent Mary Hether­ing­ton re­minds busi­nesses it is free to en­ter and that busi­nesses must nom­i­nate them­selves.

“There are 10 cat­e­gories and the more nom­i­na­tions, the more spec­tac­u­lar the gala awards din­ner will be,” she said.

“We be­lieve that the awards will pro­vide the op­por­tu­nity for all busi­nesses to show­case their achieve­ments and to cel­e­brate busi­ness ex­cel­lence in our com­mu­nity.

“All win­ners of the awards will have the op­por­tu­nity to progress to the NSW Cham­ber Re­gional Awards and if suc­cess­ful at that level can progress to the NSW Cham­ber State awards.

“We are con­fi­dent in the cal­iber of our lo­cal busi­ness com­mu­nity to be po­ten­tially rec­og­nized at th­ese lev­els.

“It is a great op­por­tu­nity for busi­nesses to show­case them­selves. There’s plenty to be gained by en­ter­ing - pro­mot­ing your busi­ness and the win­ning ap­pli­cants hav­ing the chance to en­ter the NSW Busi­ness Cham­ber Re­gional State Awards. (For more in­for­ma­tion see, www.corowacham­
