• People's Choice Award Sponsored by Total Restoration Services

    Partial proceeds from voting will help establish a scholarship for a local business student, while other proceeds will help fund initiatives from the Chamber to support local business.


    From Sept. 14 to Oct. 4, members of the public can vote for their favourite among the businesses and non-profits nominated as part of the Greater Vernon Chamber’s Business Excellence Awards.

    The winner of the People’s Choice Award will be announced at the Business Excellence Awards virtual gala Oct. 23. Registration details for the gala will be posted soon to vernonchamber.ca.
