There is something new this year with the Better Business Bureau of Acadiana's 21st Annual Awards Program Nov. 7th. This year the program is a luncheon to be held at City Club in River Ranch at 12:00 p.m. to honor local businesses exemplifying integrity in the local business community.
The mission of the Awards Program is to promote both the importance of ethical business practices and the willingness and honor the efforts made by outstanding businesses to ensure our marketplace remains fair and honorable to everyone.
People are overwhelmed with choices and often unsure about where to find reliable, unbiased information. BBB helps people find and recommend businesses, brands and charities they can trust. Through these efforts BBB helps millions of people each year.
The awards program honors local companies chosen by BBB of Acadiana Board of Directors for maintaining a high level of integrity and creating trust in the Acadiana marketplace.
Two companies, one large and one small, will be chosen as the winners of the Integrity Award, which is awarded to the businesses that have gained the respect of the community through programs that promote ethical business practices and principals.
Small company finalists for the 2013 Integrity Award are Lee's Air Conditioning Co., Westmark Construction Co. Inc. and YMCA of Acadiana.
Large company finalists include Bruce Foods Corporation, Cornerstone Village South and KATC Communications.
BBB assures their advertising is honest and accurate and that they are truthfully representing their products and services by creating a community of trustworthy businesses, setting standards for marketplace trust, encouraging and supporting best practices, celebrating marketplace role models and denouncing substandard marketplace behavior.
Winners will be announced at the luncheon. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. Tickets are available for $35 each through Nov. 1. Please call BBB of Acadiana at (337) 981-3497 for more information.
