2020 BUSINESS EXCELLENCE AWARDS REQUEST FOR INFORMATION
In order for your company to advance for consideration by the selection committee, we require that you submit information to substantiate how you have met the award criteria. A committee comprised of area business leaders will then review the information provided by each respective nominee. Your assistance in obtaining the necessary information about your business, its successes, community involvement and other award-winning attributes is vital so that the panel may fairly evaluate your company’s nomination. This is the criteria for the awards:
The business must be for-profit and needs to have demonstrated several of the following attributes:
- Growth in business and/or employment (i.e. growth in sales or employees, etc.)
- Stability and longevity in your industry (i.e. adaption to changing industry, viability to your industry, etc.)
- Capital investment or expansion of operations and/or efficiencies
- Innovation (expansion of products/product lines)
- Outstanding customer service
- Consistent involvement in the community
SCROLL DOWN for a questionnaire that can be used to provide this additional information about your business and its recent successes. You may also include other materials to support your application (i.e., any marketing materials, catalogs, recent articles written about your business and/or excerpts from your website, etc.).
Please submit the information no later than February 17, 2020, preferably electronically, to Chris Gumpp, firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also submit via fax (330) 452-7786 or by mail to Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce, Attn: Chris Gumpp, 222 Market Ave. N, Canton, OH 44702.
Winners will be contacted in March and will be recognized during the awards banquet on Tuesday, May 5, 2020, at Kent State University at Stark Conference Center. Each Business Excellence Award winner will receive two (2) complimentary tickets to attend the dinner.
