Minerva Award

According to legend, ‘Minerva’ was the goddess of warriors, poetry, medicine, wisdom, commerce, and craft. She was often depicted as an owl - a symbol of wisdom.

The Minerva Award is presented annually to recognize a member with the Comox Valley Women’s Business Network who gives freely of her experience, time and energy to the organization, its members and our community. This member is someone who has been instrumental in the growth of the CVWBN, who has assisted others in the membership, and is a well-respected member of the business community.

The presentation of the award is made at the Annual General Meeting, which is held on the second Wednesday in May each year.

We are now accepting applications for the 2016/17 Minerva Award
The deadline for nominations is April 22, 2017.
