The Natchitoches Area Chamber of Commerce announced the new Best of Natchitoches Awards campaign. For years, the Chamber has recognized the “best” in business at their Annual Awards Banquet.
This new online awards campaign champions the achievements of Chamber member businesses and recognizes them as the “Best of Natchitoches”. Online nominations are currently open at the BestOfNatchitoches.com. Anyone may nominate any Chamber member business for an award. Nominations will be open for two weeks, and will close on Friday, April 2.
Nominees will then be contacted for a write-up on their business highlighting their achievements and accolades. A cross panel of business professionals will then review the nominees’ submissions, and will select the finalists for each category based on specific award criteria. Then finalists will be notified and announced to the public, at which time voting will begin. After the voting period ends, the Chamber will announce the winners via a Facebook live event.
“This awards rebrand is one of the many exciting things we are rolling out in 2021,” said Chamber President Laura Lyles. “This new way of celebrating businesses will allow us to showcase the best our business community has to offer.”
