It’s time to acknowledge the best of the best in business in the 32nd annual Kelowna Chamber Business Excellence Awards.

“As a past award winner, I know the tension, the excitement and the incredible energy that winning gave all our employees and what fun we had throughout,” Kelowna Chamber president Nikki Csek said. “I can’t wait!”

Awards will be presented in 12 categories, 11 of which are filled by nominations. Categories include rising star, micro business, large business, young entrepreneur, not-for-profit excellence, marketing campaign of the year and social leadership. Online nominations will be accepted until July 11.
