Columbia, MD and Tysons Corner, VA (ASBC5) - - For the last four years, the Founders of The American Small Business Coalition have taken on the challenge of selecting from their membership, those individuals and/or companies who most closely "resemble" the criteria established for the seven awards presented during the organizations' birthday celebration. That's typically not an easy thing to do.
"In retrospect, it seems as if Judy Bradt has been positioning herself for this for the last few years," says Chief Visionary and Co-Founder, Guy Timberlake. "Judy has methodically increased her level of visibility and participation each year which is directly attributed to her level of exposure in The ASBC Community."
Judy and her company, Summit Insight, joined the membership in 2006 and Judy is involved with The ASBC at multiple levels. She is a member of the Ambassador Corps and participates in the newly formed Women Presidents, Owners and Chief Executives Group (Women's POCx). In addition, Judy assumed hostess duties for The ASBC's weekly Business Over Breakfast event at the Tower Club in March and didn't miss a beat. Guy adds, "She was even part of the Events Planning Committee for the Fifth Anniversary Conference and Awards Dinner which made it even more tricky not to slip up and tell her about the award too early!"
"Judy has always been an active Member of The ASBC community. In the last year she made mastering her relationship with The ASBC and other Members a personal mission," explains Margaret Timberlake, President and Co-Founder of The ASBC."By incorporating 'The ASBC' into her conversation she has greatly contributed to the level of buzz about The ASBC causing others to come find out what The ASBC has to offer. We often hear or see when new Members are signing up, 'I was referred by Judy Bradt' no matter if it is someone she met online or at one of her seminars. Her energy and spirit and untiring willingness to assist both The ASBC and fellow Members are a few of the reasons she was selected as Member of the Year."
If you would like to participate in acknowledging all of the Annual Member Award honorees, plan to join us on the evening of April 23, 2009 as The American Small Business Coalition applauds Judy and the others and celebrates five years of support to the government sector. You will be treated to an energy-filled cocktail networking reception with entertainment, a superb awards dinner and the "Freeze Frame" Photo Booth that will capture guest celebration memories in print and digitally.
