As the heat of Sarnia-Lambton’s summer hits, there’s another season in full swing, that being nominations for this year’s Outstanding Business Achievement Awards.
While the event itself may seem a ways off—Friday, October 12 at the Imperial Theatre in downtown Sarnia—it’s the nominations in some 16 categories that are now taking place.
Since nominations opened on April 9, dozens of companies and individuals have already had their names put forth, many from clients that have a keen desire to “spread the word” as to the satisfaction they’ve received over the past year.
But it’s also important to note that it is extremely rewarding for companies and individuals that have distinguished themselves in the eyes of their customers to be recognized in a public forum in one or more of the OBAA categories, says Chamber CEO Shirley de Silva.
“With this year’s event, we’ve also made the significant change of opening up nominations to every business in Sarnia-Lambton, not just those who are already members,” said de Silva.
The next key deadline on the path to this year’s Outstanding Business Achievement Awards is Monday, July 9, when nominations come to a close.
At that point, nominees will be contacted for their formal acceptance and the preparation of their submissions for judging will begin.
This season’s OBAA gala is expected to be one of the Chamber’s most successful and exciting, with broader appeal and intense competition among so many worthy contenders for the various categories.
Nominations can be done online by clicking HERE or by filling out a form at the Chamber office or at any branch of Libro Credit Union, the presenting sponsor for this year’s Outstanding Business Achievement Awards.
