Vote for Business Woman of Year

The Park City Women’s Business Network is looking for interested parties to join the committee for the Business Women of the Year Award.

The 2007 Businesswoman of the Year award was Julie Wilson, the director of food and beverages at Deer Valley Resort for the past 23 years.

The award is presented at the business network’s annual fall fashion fundraiser.

Money raised at the event helps fund academic scholarships for a handful of women each year.

The committee will establish criteria for the award recipient, develop and distribute the nomination form, create a marketing strategy, review nominations and deliver finalists to the executive board.
