— Keith King, Founder & CEO, NVBDC

DETROIT, MI, UNITED STATES, August 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Each year, NVBDC’s Board of Directors and Executive Officers review the activity of our corporations, individual NVBDC Corporate Members, Certified Service-Disabled and Veteran-Owned Businesses (SD/VOBs) and resource partners. This year we have added a new award to recognize our media partners. Recommendations for the awards are solicited from all NVBDC Team Members, which are submitted to the Board and Officers for deliberation. The individual awards each have its own set of standards, to ensure the individual or company selected is the appropriate candidate to be recognized for merit and achievements “above and beyond the call of duty.” The standards and criteria for all nine award categories are reviewed annually to ensure there is an appropriate candidate for each award.

This year NVBDC is opening the award nominations to all our veterans and corporations to help find the best qualified individual or corporate recipient. All award criteria are built on a high set of standards proving achievements in supplier diversity, promotion of veteran businesses, and leadership in the community. It is vital when presenting each category nomination to our Board and Executive Officers that NVBDC has an unbiased selection of nominees that fit the criteria. We are looking forward to announcing the award recipients at our premier matchmaking conference, 2021 NVBDC Connect, November 3-4.

“NVBDC’s motto is “Veterans helping Veterans”, proudly supported by America’s largest corporations. We want to make sure our 2021 NVBDC Award selection process is unbiased. Opening up the nominations to the community provides us with nominations from all veterans and corporations. You can nominate yourself, colleague, your corporation, and/or another corporation as long as it fits within the criteria,” said, Keith King, Founder & CEO.
