COPA is pleased to be launching the second year of our Members’ Choice Awards with some exciting new additions! The awards program is a way for our members to recognize businesses and organizations that directly contribute to the success of general aviation across Canada. You can give well-deserved recognition to your favourite business by nominating them for an award in one of the following categories:
• Best Airport Management • Best Pilot Supply Store • Best Aircraft Maintenance
• Best Aviation Event • Best FBO or Fuel Retailer • Best Flight Training Unit
• Best Medical Examiner • Best Airport Restaurant (see below)
New this year, the Members’ Choice Airport Restaurant contest will run summer-long from July to August 2018. COPA Members and restaurant representatives can nominate businesses until July 31, 2018 by emailing entries to firstname.lastname@example.org or by filling out the nomination form on our website. Voting will be conducted online from July 1 – August 31, 2018 and winners will be recognized at the Members’ Choice Awards ceremony in the fall. ‘Airport Restaurants’ may include sit-down restaurants, chip trucks, canteens, lemonade stands, cafés, etc.
Additionally, members can earn a COPA hat from our new clothing line by logging visits to 5 participating restaurants! Sign-in to your COPA account online to log your visits and receive your prize. More details about the contest can be found by visiting https://copanational.org/en/memberschoice/.
