Nominations for The Cornwall and Area Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence and Citizen of the Year Awards are now open.
Last year the Cornwall Chamber of Commerce honoured the winners in a powerful new way with the launch of the 44-page BEA+ magazine.” The magazine creates an enduring celebration of the Citizen of the Year and Business Excellence Awards winners,” stated Chamber President Shannon Lebrun. “We look forward to this year’s edition and the inspirational stories of our winners.” The anticipated launch of the 2022 BEA+ is in the middle of June.
