Call for Nominations: 2017 Thomas M. Haverford Choice Award

The impact of the 2016 ELGL Choice Award remains — ELGL members are making more informed decisions in selecting vendors and Choice Award winners are gaining new clients.

For 2017, you’ll notice a major change to the award. Due to his unmatched entrepreneurial skills (Entertainment 720, Rent-A-Swag, and Tom’s Bistro), which are shared by many Choice Award winners, we honor Tom Haverford by renaming the Choice Award to recognize his contributes to local government. Allow us to introduce you to the 2017 Thomas M. Haverford Choice Award.
