Nominee & Judging Process
All nominees will be contacted by the Fairview & District Chamber of Commerce and asked if they would like to accept the nomination. If the nominee accepts the nomination, they will be asked to complete a Nominee Questionnaire. Details included in these packages will be used by the volunteer judging panel to score and determine finalists and ultimately the winners in each category. * If a business is nominated in multiple categories, the business must choose a maximum of 2 categories to compete in. * The Chamber staff reserves the right to reallocate nominees into the appropriate award category if they are determined to be ineligible in the category submitted.
The volunteer judging panel is comprised of an impartial, diverse group of respected community members, past Chamber board members, past winners & business leaders outside our community. * Please note Chamber staff nor current Board of Directors are involved in nominee judging.
Nominees will be announced once they have been contacted and have accepted nomination. Finalists in each category will be announced on October 12, 2022. Winners will be announced at our Annual Business Awards Gala on Friday October 21, 2022.
