RDEK Seeks Nominations for 2022 Electoral Area Volunteers of the Year

The Regional District of East Kootenay is currently seeking nominations for the 2022 Electoral Area Volunteers of the Year.

“Do you have a neighbour who is always thinking of others first? Is someone close to you making your community a better place, or making positive change for those around them? These are the individuals or couples that the RDEK wants to celebrate,” says RDEK Board Chair Rob Gay. “Please take a moment and nominate an amazing volunteer in your area, as now more than ever, it’s important to honour the people who are making a difference in our region.”

Nomination forms are now available and, as it has in past years, the Regional District will be honouring one outstanding volunteer or couple from each of its six Electoral Areas.

Nominees must be a resident of an Electoral Area (outside of incorporated municipalities) and make voluntary contributions to the spirit, culture or people of the community.

Nomination forms can be filled out on engage.rdek.bc.ca and can also be picked up at the Cranbrook and Columbia Valley RDEK offices.

The deadline for nominations is 4:30pm on February 11, 2022
