Subject: Legislator of the Year Award
The VEDA Legislator of the Year Award was awarded for the first time in 2007 to Senator Walter A. Stosch to recognize his efforts in serving as an ambassador for economic and community development in Virginia. As this annual award continues to be an important recognition, the VEDA Board has continued to strengthen the process.
VEDA is soliciting potential candidates for this prestigious award. Candidates do not have to be VEDA members nor must their contributions be related to any particular project or activity.
The 2012 Legislator of the Year Award will be presented at the VEDA Annual Meeting of the Membership in Richmond, Virginia, November 29, 2012.
The deadline for nominations is October 15, 2012.
Help VEDA recognize those legislators who are positively promoting economic development in Virginia.
Nominations must be made online at www.GoVEDA.org. Please contact VEDA office at 757-412-2664 if you have any questions.
