First, the keynote speaker has just been announced by Chamber CEO Lynn Dennis.
It’s Mayor Ed Murray, shown in a WSB photo from his Hiawatha appearance last week announcing the parks-funding proposal; he will be back on this side of the bay for the occasion.
Second, the nomination deadline has been extended through tomorrow, and Dennis says it’s important that you know EVERYONE is welcome to send in a nomination, Chamber member or not – “So often we do not get the chance to tell people how much we appreciate them and their involvement in the community,” she points out. “This is the opportunity to do just that.” Here again are the categories:
Westside Business of the Year – This nominee has been in business at least 3 years and demonstrated business excellence and success.
Westside Emerging Business – This nominee business has been in operations for less than 3 years but is meeting the challenges of a growing business through leadership.
Westside Not-For-Profit of the Year – This nominee non-profit is making our community a better place to live while contributing to community benefit through their mission.
Westsider of the Year – This nominee is making a lasting impact on our community and the lives of others or is an up-coming community role model.
West Seattle Chamber membership is NOT required for either nominators or nominees. Just go here to nominate a business or person tonight or tomorrow.
