The Australian Institute of Flexible Learning (AIFL), from Corryong is very proud to announce that they have made it to the finals of the Albury Wodonga Chamber of Commerce Business Awards – in not just one category but two. This is a stellar achievement for the AIFL, as the awards are open to all local business in the greater Albury Wodonga area. For a new, small business such as the AIFL, part of the Upper Murray Health & Community Services, to gain recognition for business excellence and technological innovation is truly a great achievement.
The primary purpose of the Chamber Business Awards is to provide local businesses the opportunity to celebrate and be recognised for their achievements – and the AIFL takes great pride in being able to say they have made it to the finals and Maxine Brockfield, Chief Executive and DON of Upper Murray Health & Community Services says “We all should be very proud of this great resource we have here in Corryong”.
The categories the AIFL has achieved finalist status in are the “Best New Business” category, and the “Excellence in Business Technology and Innovation”. “Best New Business” is awarded to a business or organization which has been in operation more than twelve months but less than three years and shows excellence in research, innovation, development and overall solid business practices – and the judging panel has agreed, the AIFL checks all those boxes, in particular, the judges were most impressed with the AIFL’s strategic business plan and good business structure. The website (www.aifl.edu.au) also came in for special comment as it was considered to be very user friendly and easy to navigate. The “Excellence in Business Technology and Innovation” recognizes a business which demonstrates their commitment and achievements towards improved business technology and innovation – and again, the AIFL admirably demonstrates that, having created an innovative and new method of delivering distance education.
The winners of the Chamber of Commerce Awards will be announced at a Gala event on the 15th October and the AIFL hopes that they will be able to join the other winners on stage to accept their award.
The AIFL is also a nominee in the People’s Choice award. This will be awarded to the business receiving the most public votes via an SMS voting system.
