2009 Award Recipients
The three recipients were honored and celebrated at the Third Annual Ethics in Business Award presentation on June 18, 2009 at Casa di Fiori at the Inn at Leola Village. With about 150 people in attendance, the event was a great success.
The presentation of the award recipients followed a keynote address by Don Eberly, an internationally recognized expert on community and economic development and advisor to two Presidents on civic leadership. His latest book, The Rise of Global Civic Society: Building Communities and Nations from the Bottom Up, was named on the leading works in 2008 that drive the discussion. The book details the rise of philanthropy, volunteerism and public/private partnerships in contributing to global political and economic development.
