October 31, 2017 – The Cornwall Chamber’s prestigious Business Excellence Awards will celebrate its 30th anniversary by recognizing a brand new category at its 2018 banquet. Since 1988, the Chamber has recognized excellence throughout the Cornwall area and 2018 will be a special year for the event.

“The Young Professionals award, to be given for the first time at the Chamber’s upcoming 30th anniversary Awards banquet, is one that will recognize Cornwall’s next generation of business professionals,” explains Rory L. MacLennan, the association’s President.

“This up and coming group of talented individuals represents those who will play a key role in Cornwall’s growth and prosperity,” continues MacLennan. “We’re pleased that the Eastern Ontario Training Board has agreed to sponsor this new award.”

The Young Professionals award will be part of a number of business and individual awards along with the distinguished Dr. Garth Taylor Humanitarian and Citizen of the Year. “The Chamber is the voice of the business community in the greater Cornwall area and paying tribute through its Awards banquet is one of the many ways it supports the community,” states Chamber Executive Manager, Lezlie Strasser.

The 2018 Business Excellence Awards and Citizen of the Year banquet will be presented at the NAV Centre on Saturday, February 24.

Nominations for winners in the various categories are now open and the Chamber encourages the people of Cornwall and area to visit its web site and submit the name of a firm or individual whom they consider to be suitable candidates.
