Business Achievement Awards - Winners Announced!

The Parksville & District Chamber of Commerce is honoured to announce the winners of the Business Achievement Awards. The awards gala, held last night at the Parksville Community and Conference Centre was a SOLD OUT event with over 240 guests. The event was co-hosted by Dave Graham, 88.5 the Beach and Matt Breedlove of Royal LePage, along with finalists, past winners and guests all there to celebrate the outstanding business members in our community.

‘Our goal this year was to re-invent the Business Awards and we did that in spades! We had a record number of nominations, lots of interest from the community, great publicity and a sold out awards ceremony. Managing the Awards represents a lot of work but in the end, it’s so worth it to see the finalists excitement! said Kim Burden, Executive Director, Parksville & District Chamber of Commerce. There were seven awards presented last night - 6 categories and our first Community Spirit Award:
