Courtesy Award Nomination
For the past 50 years, the Berea Chamber of Commerce has presented the Grindstone Award to citizens of Berea who have made this a better community in which to live. Last year, the Berea Chamber of Commerce expanded the awards program to also acknowledge community members who have displayed exemplary examples of courtesy in their line of work through the Courtesy Award. Candidates for this award should demonstrate qualities such as exemplary performance and achievement in making significant contributions to their organization and showing commitment to their organization’s mission and core values. They should also demonstrate excellence in customer service and personal interaction by enabling an environment that fosters collaboration, communication and cooperation among colleagues and the public. Candidates should show outstanding initiative and creativity in their efforts to improve processes and increase efficiency. Finally, nominees should be those who look for ways to build positive working relationships and demonstrate superior professionalism in dealing with difficult situations. The Grindstone and Courtesy Award winners will be honored at an awards banquet to take place in April.
