More than 360 area leaders in business, education, and government came together at Boar’s Head Inn to recognize outstanding technology achievements. The event, hosted each year by the Charlottesville Business Innovation Council (CBIC), was the largest in its history, having grown by 50% from last year. This year’s gala also featured an expanded awards program with nine total awards, seven of which are all-new, which is a testament to the ever-evolving nature of the innovation movement and our region’s entrepreneurs.

Woods Rogers’ attorney Nathan Evans, presented the Volunteer of the Year award to Lianne Landers.  Lianne was recognized for going above and  beyond the average to make substantial and lasting contributions to the cause of advancing CBIC.  She has been a director on CBIC’s board since 2011, is co-chair of CBIC’s Marketing Communications (MARCOM) committee and its Blog Editorial Board.  She has also served on CBIC’s Tech Tour, Strategic Planning and Nominating Committees throughout her many years of service.  She was integral in the development of CBIC’s inaugural blog, which launched earlier this year, and in establishing and leading a strong MARCOM team of diverse volunteers who further CBIC’s agenda and mission.

Congratulations, Lianne!
