The Parksville & District Chamber of Commerce is pleased to host the 2016 Parksville & District Business Awards of Excellence, which will be presented on March 9, 2017. These awards are an opportunity to recognize and honour businesses and individuals that have made outstanding contributions to our community in 2016. 

The committee has made some changes to the award categories this year, and we are pleased to add Employer of the Year, "The Rock" (the John Rockley Memorial Award) and New Business of the Year (replacing Entrepreneur of the Year) to the awards for Customer Service and Large & Small Business. Nominations for the awards may be made online, through our website, or download and print the .pdf. 

The Chamber Board recognizes the importance of strategic planning through the provision of a sense of direction and measurable goals. They believe strategic planning is a tool that is useful for guiding day-to-day decisions and also for evaluating progress and changing approaches when moving forward The plan they have developed gives careful thought to the strategic objectives it outlines, and is backed up with realistic, thoroughly researched, quantifiable benchmarks for evaluating results.

The Board considered the current environment, where we are headed as an organization and opportunities for future improvement. They evaluated and adjusted both the Vision Statement and the Mission Statement.
