Annual awards honor local business community

October 1, 2018 by  

The Platinum Awards of the New Westminster Chamber of Commerce is taking place next month, presented by Douglas College.

This is a major networking event in the local business year and is expected to attract some of the top business and community leaders from New Westminster and the surrounding area. There will be 14 awards in all to be handed out at the gala event, including Bernie Legge Cultural Artist of the Year, Innovator of the Year, Customer Service Excellence, Community Spirit Award, and the Larry Tamkin Award (for contributions to the community). The deadline for nominations is October 14.

The evening gets underway with a cocktail reception during which guests will have the opportunity to briefly discuss business with their business peers. It will be followed by a dinner and the awards presentation.

It is likely that many of those planning to attend this event will be placing a new business card printing order with their favorite New Westminster printing company. They will want to ensure their contact information is current and correct.

The Platinum Awards gala will be held at the Starlight Casino on November 22 from 6:00 to 9:30 PM. Tickets are $100 or $75 for seniors. To learn more about this event or the awards themselves, contact the New Westminster Chamber of Commerce at 604-521-7781.
