2011 Celebrate Chesterfield Business! Event

Chesterfield County Economic Development Announces Celebrate Chesterfield Business!

Chesterfield County and this year's sponsors join the Commonwealth of Virginia in celebrating Business Appreciation Week throughout the Commonwealth. Coordinated each year by the Virginia Department of Business Assistance, Business Appreciation Week is scheduled for May 2nd–6th, 2011.

This year's Business Appreciation Week theme is “Entrepreneurship and Innovation for a Sustainable Future”. The Commonwealth and Chesterfield County recognize the efforts of each business – corporate leaders and small business owners alike - for their continuous work and dedication. Virginia businesses play a pivotal role in strengthening the Commonwealth by embracing job creation, innovative technologies and employing a diverse workforce to preserve the economic well being of all citizens. “Local businesses contribute to the strength of our local economy and provide enhanced quality of life for our residents,” said Chesterfield County Administrator James J. L. Stegmaier. “I am privileged to officially thank every business in our community during Business Appreciation Week.”

Chesterfield County Economic Development along with Dupont, this year's Master Sponsor and the Holiday Inn Koger Conference Center, the Venue Sponsor, will host this year's Celebrate Chesterfield Business! for local businesses in honor of Business Appreciation on May 3rd, 2011 from 4:30 –7:30 PM. An invitation to the event is required. If you are interested in attending, and are a Chesterfield County business, please contact Economic Development. Driving directions are avaliable here.

This year’s Media Sponsor is the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Other sponsors include Townes Engineering, Dominion Virginia Power, Columbia Gas of Virginia, Village Bank, Chesterfield County Chamber of Commerce, and the Greater Richmond Partnership.

This year Chesterfield County will be announcing the Annual First Choice Business Award winners during the event. Village Bank was the 2010 Business of the Year recipient.
