Charlottetown, PE (June 7, 2022) – The Greater Charlottetown Area Chamber of Commerce is now accepting nominations for the 2023 President’s Excellence Awards. Sponsored by Atlantic Lottery, the President’s Excellence Awards gala is the Chamber’s biggest night of the year, where Chamber members and community leaders gather to celebrate the successes, innovations, and contributions of our local entrepreneurs.

“The President’s Excellence Awards is an important event we host every year to celebrate the passion and dedication our members demonstrate each and every day,” said Chamber President, Bill DeBlois. “I encourage all Chamber members and members of the community to submit their nominations and join us in recognizing the hard work and achievements of our business community.”

The categories for this year’s gala include Excellence in Business, Excellence in Small Business, Not-for-Profit Excellence, Excellence in Customer Service, Emerging Business Excellence, Workplace Excellence, Innovation Excellence, People’s Choice for Community Impact, and Entrepreneur of the Year.

A panel of independent judges adjudicates the nominations to determine the award finalists. The recipient of the People’s Choice for Community Impact Award is decided through an online poll that will take place in the fall. New this year, the Entrepreneur of the Year will also be determined through a public nomination process, with the Chamber Board of Directors Executive Committee selecting the winner.

The 2023 President’s Excellence Awards will be held on January 25, 2023, at the Delta Hotels by Marriott Prince Edward.
