Citizen of the Year nomination time
The Cranbrook Chamber of Commerce is seeking nominations for the 2019 Cranbrook Citizen of the Year.
Since 1973 the Chamber has had the honour of coordinating the nomination process and the celebration for the Cranbrook Citizen of the Year Award. This award seeks to honour an individual whose impact through the years will be recognized and regarded with pride throughout the area as a role model. This outstanding citizen is chosen for their definable, exceptional deeds, with which he or she has made Cranbrook a better place to live.
“It is important that we continue to celebrate those individuals who have committed themselves to making Cranbrook a great place to live, work and play,” said Chamber President Jason Fast. “This is an exceptional award for an extraordinary citizen and the Cranbrook Chamber of Commerce is proud to carry on the tradition of honouring our citizens that work towards the betterment of our community.”
Chamber members and the public alike are invited to nominate an exceptional individual who, through their efforts, has made Cranbrook a better place.
Nominators are asked to advance the name of the nominee along with supporting documents outlining the range of community contribution, years of active involvement, and positions held within organizations or groups that benefit Cranbrook.
A minimum of three letters of support are required to accompany the nomination.
The deadline for nominations is Friday, November 29.
Nominations can be emailed to the Chamber, [email protected] or dropped off at Cranbrook Chamber of Commerce at 2279 Cranbrook Street North or mailed to PO Box 84, Cranbrook, V1C 4H6.
