Local lawyers, doctors, dentists and accountants will have a chance to take their turn in the spotlight at this year’s Fort Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce business awards gala.
The chamber will be awarding a new honour at 2018’s event, handing out their first ever professional services award.
“We did this to better recognize the professional service providers and give them a category to show their outstanding work,” said Alana Seymour, the chamber’s marketing and membership manager.
The new addition will see the chamber announcing winners in 10 categories at their October 19 ceremony. Members of the public are invited to drop by the chamber’s website to nominate businesses of their choice in any of the categories until August 31.
"This is an opportunity for the public to recognize the well-deserving business owners here in Fort Saskatchewan," said Seymour.
The three businesses with the highest number of nominations in each category will be asked to fill out a questionnaire, with a panel of judges then tallying up scores and picking out winners.
This year brings a new twist to the chamber's customer service award. The top three nominees in this category will skip the judging panel and instead be put to a public poll, with the award going to the business earning the most votes.
The chamber will reveal 2018's finalists sometime in September.
