Do you know a local business that is an outstanding contributor to our community? The Town of Stony Plain is looking for nominations for the Ambassador of Action Business Award. Eligible nominees must demonstrate improvements or impacts in the following areas: investment in the business’ buildings or facilities, job creation, new or enhanced product or service offerings, and a generated profile as a result of their success.
“The Ambassador of Action Award recognizes a Stony Plain business that has transformed and adapted their operations to be more competitive,” says Mayor William Choy, “We encourage all residents, customers, employees, and business owners to nominate a local business that has made this investment and created benefits for them and the community.”
The Town has presented the Ambassador of Action Business Award to local businesses since the program was launched in 2009. The recipient chosen has made an impact on its business and the community through demonstrated improvement, innovation and expansion. The intent is to acknowledge the many hard-working people who continually exhibit passion for business excellence and who advance responsible business practices and leadership.
James Schoepp is the owner of Homegrown Foods, and last year’s recipient. “Winning the Town Ambassador of Action Business Award was a huge privilege and honour for Homegrown Foods. We take pride in serving the local community and providing them with healthy food and lifestyle options.” Schoepp goes on to say, “Our success and growth since 1997 is testimony from our customers we are fulfilling this vision and recognition from the Town with this prestigious award last year continues to inspire and affirm this vision for the future.”
Nominations can be submitted online at stonyplain.com/award. The deadline to nominate a business is 2:00 p.m., Monday, September 19. This year’s award will be presented at the 2016 Chamber of Commerce Awards Gala, hosted by the Stony Plain and District Chamber of Commerce, on Saturday, November 5.
