The Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce’s Women in Business committee is seeking nominations for its 2020 APEX Awards, an annual awards event that recognizes outstanding women in the Greater Fort Myers community who excel in the areas of professionalism, philanthropy and leadership.
Nominations for the APEX Awards are open now through April 17, and the community is invited to submit nominations online at www.fortmyers.org/events/apex-awards. Nominees must be current members of the Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce.
“The Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce and Women in Business committee are proud to hold this event to honor the incredible women of Fort Myers and surrounding Lee County,” said Tracy Siekmann, co-chair of the 2020 APEX Awards. “We encourage the Southwest Florida community to nominate their inspirational, hardworking leaders for this prestigious recognition.”
Following a review of all nominations, Women in Business will announce this year’s top five finalists during its monthly networking session on June 3 at the Crowne Plaza at Bell Tower in Fort Myers. These five finalists will go on to be recognized during the main event, where one will be named the recipient of this year’s APEX Award.
Presented by Sanibel Captiva Community Bank, the 15th annual APEX Awards dinner will be held on Friday, Aug. 28 at The Westin Cape Coral Resort at Marina Village in Cape Coral. Tickets are $150 each, available for purchase at www.FortMyers.org.
“Each year, this event offers a special opportunity for our region to celebrate the women of our community,” added 2020 APEX Awards co-chair Kelly Talamo. “We look forward to welcoming yet another phenomenal business and community leader into this group of distinguished APEX women.”
