Final Week To Nominate An Outstanding Manager In The Region

Now is the time for managers across the region to consider nominating for this year's Management Excellence Awards, with nominations closing on Friday 10 June.

This prestigous awards program celebrates the individual contributions and achievements of outstanding managers, rather than the businesses or organisations they own and run.

Melissa Schembri, 2008 Young Manager of the Year in the Sunshine Coast region encourages managers in Mackay to jump online and nominate today with the awards program providing the individual manager an opportunity to shine among peers.

"The Management Excellence Awards are an incredible opportunity to reflect on your achievements and a time to feel proud of the amazing role you play in the business community in Mackay and region," she said.

"As the Sunshine Coast's 'Young Manager of the Year 2008', I was blown away by the opportunities and exposure that presented itself immediately after the Awards and is still presenting itself today.

"If you are a Manager, or know a Manager in the Mackay region who is doing an excellent job, please nominate them, as they could very well be the 2011 AIM Manager of the Year," Ms Schembri said.

The Management Excellence Awards are designed to acknowledge some of the best managers and leaders across a range of industries. Award categories include Professional Manager of the Year, Owner Manager of the Year, Young Manager of the Year, Rural/Remote Manager of the Year and Not for Profit Manager of the Year.

Nominations for the 2011 Management Excellence Awards can be lodged online at and close Friday 10 June 2011. Nominating is free of charge and only takes a few minutes. For more information, call 1300 882 895.
