Business Awards open to all businesses

Rod Dever, Chamber President

The Gosford-Erina and Coastal (GEC) Chamber of Commerce has announced the return of Gosford RSL Club as the key naming rights sponsor for the 2018 Business Awards.

“Gosford RSL has always been a supporter of local community and business initiatives, and they stand firmly with their commitment to the Chamber,” said Rod Dever, GEC Chamber President. “The GEC Chamber is proud to have the RSL back on board for another year’s business awards, where together we can recognise the best in the area for their business services,” said Mr Dever. The 2018 GEC-Gosford RSL Business Awards launched in mid-February, and for the very first time, nominations will be open to all business in the Chamber’s service area, not just members, as has been the process in the past.

This change will make the awards process a genuine reflection of the quality and depth that businesses on the coast provide in many varied categories. Nominations will be open for 10 weeks, allowing local businesses the time to nominate and be confident that they have had the time to write a “story” which will best represent their business. Once closed, the judging panel will have three weeks to review and deliberate on the outcomes, with the finalists to be announced on May 16. The local awards will culminate with a Gala Awards Night at Gosford RSL, to be held on, July 7. Category winners for the awards will automatically advance as finalists for the 2018 Regional Business Awards which will be held in August.
