Civic 50 Draws Community-Minded Orange County Business Leaders to its 2018 Kick-off Event
Wednesday, April 18, 2018
Now in its second year, the annual Civic 50 kick-off event was held on April 16 at the Center Club Orange County, drawing nearly 100 business leaders.
Civic 50, presented by the Orange County Business Journal (OCBJ), in partnership with OneOC, annually recognizes the 50 most community-minded small, medium, and large Orange County companies.
Jessica Welch, senior director of operations, Greater Irvine Chamber, joined Daniel McQuaid, president & CEO of OneOC and Civic 50 Board member, and Kim Sherman, president & CEO of ECHO Media Group and 2017 Civic 50 honoree, for the kick-off event.
“The Greater Irvine Chamber is proud to support Orange County’s business community and take part in recognizing those organizations that go out of their way to help those in need,” said Welch. “Civic 50 sheds light on contributions made by Irvine’s outstanding businesses, otherwise known for their achievements in innovation and commerce.”
Honorees for 2018 will be determined through True Impact’s adapted national Civic 50 online survey that is independently administered and scored. Scoring and awards will be based on the number of employees (small 15-99, mid-size 100-499 and large 500+), and similarly sized companies will be measured within their peer group and compared only on their community engagement programs inside Orange County. Honorees will be recognized at the Orange County Business Journal’s Civic 50 Orange County Awards Luncheon to be held in the fall.
To participate, complete the survey at www.oneoc.org/occivic50. The survey deadline is June 29, 2018.
