MCBA 2017 FINALISTS ANNOUCED
The Morley Chamber Business Awards (MCBA) applications have now been judged against specific criteria submitted by each business. In the last two years since the new Morley Chamber Management Board took charge of the prestigious awards we have employed a well-defined and tested framework to ensure that the judging process is fair and free of influence.
This years judges Alexandra Fogal, Relationship Director Barclays Corporate and Steven Foster, White Rose General Manager, are both industry experts who have extensive knowledge in all aspects of business. This year we had over 30 submissions for the Morley Chamber Business Awards so we would firstly like to thank both our well respected judges for taking a considerable amount of time from their working days to meet in private and judge all applications.
The decision on a winning 2017 MCBA entry is the result of two unrelated judges, who independently judge each submission using the application submitted via each business and no prior knowledge of any applicant was given or considered. For those businesses who entered this years awards you will know the application form listed criteria and various questions for you to answer in each award category; the judges used this information to create a shortlist based on the evidence and information provided by each submission.
The shortlist has now been provided to the Morley Chamber Management Board and the winner of each category winner remain known only by the two independent judges until the awards ceremony takes place on the 17th November 2017.
On behalf of our judges and the Morley Chamber we would like to thank all the businesses in Morley and the surrounding areas who took the time to complete the applications process. Unfortunately, with such a high volume of strong applications this year, not all of the well respected businesses in our area can make the shortlist. Again we thank every single business for their submissions and hope everyone can join us for a fantastic night of celebrations and support for our ever growing economy here in Morley and the surrounding areas.
Tickets for the awards ceremony will be available on general sale from Monday 2nd October. Tickets can be purchased from Board To Tiers Morley, Martins Jewellery Box (cash only) or during any of our networking events. Tickets will be priced at £40pp including a drinks reception and three course meal.
