â€śProgress in motionâ€ť needs some motion in its progress.
The Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce 2013 Man and Woman of the Year banquet is slated for Monday, Feb. 3 and nominees are needed soon, according to Executive Director Debbye ValVerde.
â€śWe haven't received any nominees yet and we need them soon because the banquet is right around the corner.â€ť
ValVerde said there have been numerous suggestions and phone calls, but no official nominations have been made.
â€śPeople have called and given me suggestions,â€ť the executive director said. â€śAnd that's great, but we really need our members to make it official.â€ť
Nominations must be made by a chamber member who is in good standing. The entries then go before a committee that chooses the winners. Nominees for Man and Woman of the year do not have to be Chamber members, however.
â€śThey can be anybody in the community,â€ť said ValVerde. â€śBut they don't have to be members of the Chamber.â€ť
Last year's winners were Gloria McDonald and Howard Stewart.
