Prior to tonight’s Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce (MCCC) 51st Annual Dinner, Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett, County Council President Nancy Floreen and Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce President Gigi Godwin will showcase a new Ride On bus ad campaign that will promote the Green Business Certification Program and highlight the first 20 companies and organizations to become certified. The new bus ad campaign aims to encourage more companies to “get on board” the green business movement by getting certified and featured in future promotions. Joining the kick-off will be business leaders from the first certified companies and members of the Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors.
At the dinner, the Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will receive the MCCC Partner of the Year Award, which will be accepted by DEP Director Robert G. Hoyt. DEP is receiving the award for the Green Business Certification Program, which prepares businesses to succeed in the new, green economy. The award is given to “an organization that works in partnership with MCCC to propel the Chamber’s mission forward.”
