Black Tie Awards will be presented

Two people from our area have been chosen as finalists for the Cowichan Valley-wide  Black Tie Awards.

The Duncan Cowichan Chamber of Commerce recently released the Black Tie Award finalists for 2014. Only three finalists are selected in each category.

Nikki MacCallum of Nikki’s Designs in Ladysmith is a finalist for the Green Business award.

Peter Watts of the Best Western Plus Chemainus Inn is a finalist for the Business Achievement (11-19 Employees) award.

Each finalist attends an in-person interview with a panel of two judges. The interviews use a standardized score format. Once the interviews are complete, the results are forwarded to the official Black Tie Awards auditor. The results are tallied, then sealed until the night of the awards.

This is the 18th annual Black Tie Awards honouring excellence in business and volunteerism. The awards ceremony will take place Saturday, April 5 at Brentwood College School.
