Community Counts gives you a chance to learn more about the people and the organizations that have a positive impact on our community. This week we feature the Athena Award.
Liza Borches joined CBS19's Bo Sykes to talk more about the award.
The Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce's Athena Award actively supports and celebrates the ATHENA mission of supporting, developing and honoring women leaders and inspiring women to achieve their full potential.
Chamber's Athena Award recipients must meet each of the following three criteria:
I. Professional Leadership: Demonstrate excellence, creativity, and initiative in their business or profession.
II. Community Service: Provide valuable service to improve the quality of life of others in their community.
III. Personal Leadership: Assist women in reaching their full leadership potential.
Athena Award nominations are due to the Chamber by Dec. 16. The award recipient will be announced on Feb. 9, 2012 at the annual Quadruplicity conference.
