The Kamloops Chamber of Commerce and TD  are proud to be celebrating the 32nd year of the Business Excellence Awards in 2018.

Long considered to be the premiere business event of the year, the Business Excellence Awards provide an opportunity for businesses in our city, to be recognized for their successes.

Last week, the finalists were announced for the 2018 Kamloops Chamber of Commerce and TD Business Excellence. The finalists were pared down from a long list of nominees during an event on Thursday at Kamloops Ford Lincoln.

We are proud to announce that Monte Creek Ranch was nominated for two awards. The Valley First Insurance Retailer 11+ Staff Award alongside Kamloops Home Hardware Building Centre and Kamloops Office Systems and for the TRU Faculty of Adventure, Culinary Arts & Tourism and Tourism Kamloops Tourism & Hospitality Award alongside our industry colleague Terri, with DiVine Tours and Tobiano Golf Course!

The selection committee members chose the finalists of each of the 17 award categories by scoring each nominee independently. Scores were then tabulated by KPMG. The committees will now interview each finalist to determine the winners, who will be revealed at the Business Excellence Awards Gala on October 27nd how they have built loyalty with their customers and clients.

Executive Director Deb McClelland says it’s important to recognize businesses in Kamloops for their hard work.

“First of all recognizing the best of the best in the community is what the Chamber wants to do. We want to showcase what kind of businesses we have here and which ones are really excelling. So, it’s great for our community to learn about these businesses and then yes, it is a boost for those individual businesses.”

We are so lucky to live in such a wonderful community – one that supports and raises each other up. Thank you Kamloops for all of the continued support you have given us.
