November 7, 2017: Capilano University congratulates the North Vancouver Chamber on celebrating 20 years of business excellence
NORTH VANCOUVER B.C. – Capilano University is pleased to congratulate the North Vancouver Chamber for celebrating 20 years of business excellence. The chamber is hosting its (sold-out) 20th Annual Business Awards Gala, November 9, 2017.
“We look forward to being part of celebrating the North Shore’s business leaders,” says Capilano University President Paul Dangerfield. “We are grateful to work in a vibrant community that recognizes local business excellence.”
The gala will also serve as the premiere for a series of 20 videos created by students of Capilano University’s Motion Picture Arts Program (MOPA). The videos celebrate all 18 finalists and profile the awards and their sponsors.
This is the ninth year that second-year MOPA students have produced videos in partnership with the North Vancouver Chamber for the Business Excellence Awards. This applied learning project provides challenging, purposeful experience for students. Today, more than 100 students participate in the project including, for the first time, second-year students registered in Capilano University’s Indigenous Independent Digital Filmmaking Program.
The chamber will name winners in six categories: Community Contribution, Innovation, Service Excellence, Young Entrepreneur, Business of the Year and Business Person of the Year.
Capilano University is proud to play a part in this eminent event. The University commends all 18 nominees and looks forward to see who takes home the awards on the big night.
