Voting is now open for the 2017 Cabonne Daroo Business Awards after near record nominations were received for this year’s event.
Voting opened on Friday 11 August and can be completed online at www.daroobusinessawards.com.au until 5pm Friday 15 September 2017.
This year’s event promises to be one of the best in the Daroos’ 18-year history after 230 individual nominations were received across 17 categories. Many businesses received multiple nominations in each category, bringing the total number of nominations to 654. Winners in 14 categories will be decided by popular vote, with three awards – Best Business in Cabonne, Employee of the Year and Apprentice/Trainee of the Year – to be determined by a panel of independent judges. Canowindra is well represented in this year’s awards with over 22 local Canowindra businesses being nominated.
Central West Business HQ Chief Executive and Daroo Awards Committee Chairman Bruce Buchanan was delighted with the response from customers and clients who nominated businesses they believed should be recognised. “These awards recognise the achievements
and contributions of Cabonne businesses and their employees,” he said.
“I urge all those people who nominated businesses to go to the website, check out the finalists in each category and vote for their preferred businesses or organisations.” People without computer or internet access should contact the Central NSW HQ on 6362 0448 or Cabonne Council on 6392 3200 and a voting form will be mailed to them with a reply paid envelope.
