The Greater Irving-Las Colinas Chamber was honored to host Trula Tener from the US Chamber of Commerce in Washington DC to meet with Irving’s small businesses to discuss the US Chamber’s Small Business
of the Year campaign. Tener noted that Irving leads the nation in the number of
small businesses recognized as Blue Ribbon Small Businesses, and that Irving’s
nominations are always some of the best the US Chamber receives. While in
Irving, she also visited several of Irving’s Blue Ribbon Small Businesses and
met with potential applicants for 2012 Small Business of the Year, providing
tips on areas of the application that are important to the judges. She also met
with the North Texas Chamber of Commerce Executives to encourage them to get
involved in this program.

The US Chamber’s definition of small business is less than 250 employees and less than $20 million revenues in 2009 and 2010. To gain this national exposure for your business, we want to encourage you to contact Don Williams at or 214-507-5091. Don will provide you a copy of the application, and is also available to review your applications and make suggestions for improving it. Applications must be completed by
January 9th, 2012. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity for your business.
