Salt Spring’s 2017 Community Award Winners – Salt Spring Exchange Wins Media Award

    Business Profiles, News & Events    October 18, 2017

The Salt Spring Chamber of Commerce took a fresh approach to the Business Awards this year. The awards were broken into 2 categories, Community and Business Awards. Voting was done entirely by the community online rather then by closed vote. Winners receive a ‘Salty Award’ and over 50 awards will be given out in the two different areas this week. This new awards approach replaces the Salt Spring Business Excellence Awards with a process that has Salt Spring residents and fans nominating and voting for the winners!

Along with Island Savings Credit Union, the Chamber is hosting Small Business Week events this week to thank Salt Spring for being such a great community!

Community awards were given out at the Chamber event last night and Business Awards will be given out this coming Thursday.

With very special thanks, the Salt Spring Exchange was awarded your favourite local media choice. Thank you to all those who voted for us and who support the Salt Spring Exchange. Thank you to our moderators, writers, account managers, designers and developers who all work to make the Salt Spring Exchange 24/7/265. Thank you especially to our local business advertisers who support the Exchange. We couldn’t deliver this dedicated local service to the island without you. And many thank yous again to Suzanne Little for the indelible contributions you made to the Exchange over so many years. This service wouldn’t be what is has become without you.
