Commendation nominations close this month

28 Apr 2015

Time is running out for local business owners wishing to nominate themselves for the 2015 Lord Mayor’s Commendations.

Applications for the commendations, which recognise small business proprietors operating in Melbourne, close this month.

The commendations began 10 years ago and aim to acknowledge and celebrate the contributions long-term small businesses have made to the city.

Business owners are eligible to apply for a bronze commendation after 10 or more years of operation in Melbourne, a silver commendation after 25 or more years of operation, a gold commendation after 40 or more years and a platinum commendation after 50 or more years.

Businesses that have been operating within the same family for three generations are eligible for the Generational Family Business Commendation.

Since 2005, more than 450 of Melbourne’s small business proprietors and 15 generational family businesses have received commendations.

Applications for the Lord Mayor’s Commendations close on May 22 and can be made by visiting http://www.melbourne.vic.gov.au/enterprisemelbourne/BusinessSupport/lmcommendations/Pages/Applications.aspx
