               OVER 400 OF MARKHAM’S BUSINESS ELITE enjoyed a taste of Las Vegas
               at the 20th Annual Board of Trade Business Excellence Awards. Host Dean Martin
               and chorus of showgirls added sparkle and sass to the fast-paced presentation.
                   The sold-out event celebrates Markham’s thriving business community with
               awards in nine categories recognizing the very best in entrepreneurial spirit,
               success and ingenuity. Of the nine awards only the Anthony Roman Award for
               community service is presented to an individual. This year saw the addition of the
               Accessibility Award and the return of the Business Employer of Excellence.
                   A record number of nominations kept the Business Excellence Awards Committee
               busy throughout the summer with interviews. The nomination process focused
               on the elements of business success and is designed not to elicit any confidential
               company data, like financial statements or proprietary information.
                   Nominations for the 2011 awards begin in March and are open to any business
               located in the Town of Markham. Nominees are not required to be Markham Board
               of Trade members, but nominations must be made by members.
