It has been approximately one year since the Martensville & Warman Chambers of Commerce amalgamated to form the Prairie Sky Chamber of Commerce (PSCC) and within that time, much has been accomplished. Recently, the PSCC announced the launch of their ‘Love What’s Local’ initiative, which was established to help encourage local residents to support local businesses, as those are the businesses that are in turn supporting your community. Additionally, local businesses are being encouraged to modify their thinking and work together to understand different ways to keep their customers wanting to come back
Currently, the PSCC is busy planning the fourth annual Warman Martensville Business Excellence Awards (WMBEXA), which will take place May 3, 2019 at North Ridge Community Centre in Martensville.
Nominations opened on December 1st, and area residents are encouraged to nominate their favorite businesses, which Jaimie Malmgren, PSCC Executive Director noted, “compliments the ‘Love What’s Local’ initiative.” Malmgren continued to state that, “It’s a great way to show our appreciation for our local businesses and help tell stories of the great things that are going on within our region. Business owners are thrilled when we hand deliver the nomination cards!”
For anyone that nominates three businesses, their name will be entered into a draw for a VIP package for the WMBEXA gala. Nominations will be accepted until December 16th, so be sure to take the time to show your support to the businesses in the region.
Categories for this year’s Business Excellence Awards include; Non-Profit of the Year, Customer Service, Community Involvement, New Business of the Year and Business of the Year.
Following the nominations, businesses will be notified and from there, will be required to submit an application form for all categories they wish to enter. Once the application submissions are complete, anonymous judges will scour through them and select five finalists for each award. Winners will be announced at the WMBEXA gala on May 3rd.
