The North Bay and District Chamber of Commerce announced the 2014 Director of the Year and Volunteer of the Year award winners at last week’s Business After Hours.
The Betty Alcorn Memorial Award for Director of the Year has been awarded to a director of the North Bay and District Chamber of Commerce since 1977, and the Mary Ellen Horner Memorial Award for Volunteer of the Year has been awarded to a committee volunteer since 2002.
With changes occurring at the Chamber with regards to our AGM which has traditionally seen the awards presented in the fall and now moved to spring, the January Business After Hours was determined the best location this year to present the 2014 awards.
Special thank you to the Rotary Club of North Bay, hosts of the Business After Hours event in January at Osprey Links Golf Course Clubhouse, for allowing the Chamber to present the awards at their event.
Recipients are voted on by the board as having “laboured untiringly for the good and welfare of the Chamber and community”. For the fourth year in a row, the Director of the Year is Jake Lacourse and for the second year in a row the Volunteer of the Year is Nicole Bamford. Congratulations to you both.
