✦ If not, you still have time as entries don't close until the 17th of May. Wauchope Chamber of Commerce & Industry encourages all businesses, big or small, to enter the Awards.
There are many benefits to participating, including the opportunity to look back at how far your business has come and to celebrate your achievements.
The Awards are a celebration of local business and acknowledge the contributions of local operators. They bring opportunities for local business to recognise their achievements, build rapport with their team, review their business journey and consider their future plans.
"After a very successful campaign in 2022, the Awards are back to celebrate the amazing businesses in our region," said Lisa McPherson, Wauchope Chamber Executive Officer. "We are looking forward to seeing more great businesses recognised for their hard work and dedication at the 2023 Gala Dinner. This is the time of year to reflect and celebrate local business and how these businesses enhance our town and lifestyle."
Two Types of Awards
The Business Awards program will include two sections - the Local Excellence Awards and the NSW Business Chamber aligned Awards.
Through the Local Chamber Alliance between the Wauchope Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the NSW Business Chamber, the aligned Awards entries will feed into the NSW Business Chamber Mid North Coast Regional Awards, growing opportunities for local business to gain exposure and promotion to a wider audience. Winners at the regional Awards go through to the State Awards later in the year.
