2019 Central Highlands Business Excellence Awards

14 September 2019


CHDC's biennial Central Highlands Business Excellence Awards are designed to celebrate the efforts and achievements of our diverse and dedicated business community and recognise their contribution, not only to economic vitality but to creating the strong, healthy, vibrant regional community that is the Central Highlands.

Nominations are now open for the People's Choice category. This is an opportunity for customers and clients show their appreciation for local businesses whose outstanding service capabilities have contributed significantly to business excellence. Once finalists are chosen, the winner will be decided by a public vote, which opens on 29 July.
