The Economic Development Authority and the Chamber of Commerce announced today that they have launched the seventh annual 2017 Business Excellence : Business Appreciation Awards.
The Award program was designed in 2011 in observance of Virginia’s Business Appreciation Month. There are three cash grants that will be made to local small businesses exhibiting excellence in business practices and contributions to the community.
