Learn who is making a positive impact in our local economy and connect over a shared vision to continue creating a stronger, more sustainable West Michigan. The inaugural Lakeshore Annual Meeting and LocalMotion Awards, presented by EPS Security, celebrates postive economic, environmental, and social change.
Local First is excited to present the LocalMotion Awards in collaboration with the Hope Sustainability Institute and the Lakeshore Ethnic Diversity Alliance. These awards recognize those using business as a force for good. Recipients will be awarded in three categories: environment, community, and employee impact.
All nominees were asked to fill out the Quick Impact Assessment (QIA), which measures business practices from the triple bottom line such as environmental impact, charitable gifts, and employee satisfaction. Recipients are selected based on the results of their QIA. In addition to the LocalMotion Awards, Local First will also present the Guy Bazzani Local Legacy Award to a business or individual who has exemplified the Local First mission. Join us to celebrate!
