The Iowa Lakes Corridor’s Business Recognition Luncheon is just around the corner. Wednesday, Nov. 14 will mark the Corridor’s ninth annual ceremony with the purpose to thank existing business and industries for their commitment to the Corridor Region. Because of their presence, our economy is further stimulated, creating jobs and fostering the quality of life in our area.
Four awards will be given during the luncheon: Small Business Excellence (fewer than 30 employees), Large Business Excellence (30 or more employees), Entrepreneur of the Year and Young Professional of the Year. Currently, the Corridor is seeking nominations for these awards. Businesses can be nominated for various reasons: contribution to the local economy, recent expansion, new product or service, customer service, management practices, community involvement, etc.
The business/individual must be located in one of the Corridor counties: Buena Vista, Clay, Dickinson or Emmet. A person can submit a nomination for any for-profit business, entrepreneur or young professional in any of the four categories. Businesses/entrepreneurs can also nominate themselves. Multiple nominations are accepted.
Nominations will be reviewed and judged by a selection committee that consists of a mix of business owners and community leaders throughout the region. All information is confidential; answers provided will be used solely by the judges for award purposes.
