Illawarra's annual awards for business women has been put on hold so their achievements over the last 12 months can be celebrated properly.
As business organisations such as Illawarra Business Chamber get their staff to work from home and The Illawarra Connection cancels its bi-monthly black-tie networking dinner Illawarra Women In Business (IWIB) announced it is postponing its annual awards and cancelling its next lunch.
Director Glenda Papac said "we are putting the IWIB Business Women's Awards on hold until after the CVOD-19 pandemic is cleared and it is safe to carry out face-to-face judging and hold an awards day".
Mrs Papac said she presently has no idea when or if the 2020 Business Women's Awards will happen and will notify all the finalists and sponsors when she does. In the meantime she has invited finalists to email a short promo about their business of no more than 100 words or a short video to post on IWIB's Facebook page.
"The main thing is to stay positive and focus on the positive at this time and stay healthy," she said.
