Virginia Eye Consultants One of 75 Small Businesses Named U.S. Chamber of Commerce Blue Ribbon Award Winners
Washington D.C—March 7, 2012 —Virginia Eye Consultants, a leading vision care center headquartered in Norfolk, VA, was selected as one of seventy-five companies across the country named Blue Ribbon Small Business Award® winners by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Virginia Eye Consultants and other recipients were recognized for their dedication to the principles of free enterprise and their contributions to restoring jobs and prosperity.
“The recipients of this year’s Blue Ribbon Award excelled in business amid great uncertainty and thrived despite difficult economic times,” said Thomas J. Donohue, U.S. Chamber president and CEO. “More important than profits, their successes have provided much-needed jobs and hope to the people in their communities.”
The awards program, sponsored by Sam’s Club®, honors companies, like Virginia Eye Consultants, that demonstrate excellent business practices in several areas, including strategy, employee development, community involvement, and customer service.
This year’s 75 Blue Ribbon winners were selected from a record number of nationwide applicants and will be honored at America’s Small Business Summit 2012, which will be held from May 21–23 in Washington, D.C. On March 15, Virginia Eye Consultants will be in the running to be named one of the seven award finalists. One finalist will be named the DREAM BIG Small Business of the Year during the summit. The winner will be presented with a $10,000 cash prize courtesy of the U.S. Chamber.
Blue Ribbon businesses are also eligible for the Community Excellence Award, which will be decided in March through online public voting.
