The annual celebration of the North Coast's commercial sector is heading towards the March 2nd Awards show at the Lester Centre of the Arts, an evening set aside that pays tribute to those business and community organizations that continue to make for the pulse of the community.
But, before you get your finest evening wear back from the dry cleaners, there's still a bit of work ahead.
The Business Excellence Awards make for an evening of celebration for the business community, which continues to redefine itself in the region. That as the economic shift continues from the previous economies of the North Coast to the new, more port based focus that makes for much of narrative for Prince Rupert.
The get together each year also serves to showcase some of the entrepreneurial spirit that continues to thrive and evolve in the region; as well as to pay tribute to some of the longest serving businesses or individuals who have created the blue print of success and created their own space in the region's commercial sector.
The nomination process came to an end on January 6th, with the Chamber receiving a wide cross section of the many worthy candidates for consideration for a BEA for 2019.
