Nominations Open for Governor's Award for Business Excellence

The Maine Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) is now accepting nominations for the 2012 Governor's Award for Business Excellence.

Gervais explained the nature of the prestigious award and what it means for Maine businesses. "The award is presented by the Governor each spring, recognizing a handful of Maine businesses for not only their success but also their commitment and dedication to their employees and their community,” said Gervais.

Companies may be nominated or they may nominate themselves, and businesses of all sizes are strongly encouraged to apply.
