DFC Nominated for 2016 Outstanding Corporate Citizenship Award

Duty First Consulting (DFC) is honored to announce that it was recently selected by the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce as a nominee for the 2016 Outstanding Corporate Citizenship Awards in the Outstanding Veteran and Military Advocate of the Year category.

The Northern Virginia Chamber’s Outstanding Corporate Citizenship Awards honor individuals, businesses and non-profits for above-and-beyond business leadership, employee engagement, and corporate social responsibility. The Outstanding Veteran and Military Advocate Award is presented to a D.C. metro region business for outstanding and visionary contributions to support the region’s active-duty/Reserve military and/or national intelligence community, their families, and/or Veterans during the past year.

As a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business, the centerpiece of DFC’s corporate culture is our commitment and passion to support those who have served and sacrificed so much for our great nation, but who all too often ask for or receive little. While DFC does this through our work with Federal agencies every day, we want to ensure that our staff have first-hand experiences making a direct difference in the Veteran and military communities. To this end, in November 2011 DFC established its GIVE (Get Involved for Veterans) Program as a sign of our commitment to ongoing involvement in the community, and as a concrete way to share our time, talent, and passion with local Veteran and military-related charities and community initiatives. As a small business, it is unusual to find such a formal program for community commitment, but it has turned out to be one of the corporate successes for which we are most proud.

“Every time we do a GIVE event, we become more energized about community involvement and are reminded of how important this program is to our employees, clients, and local community”, said DFC partner and Veteran Ron Aument. “We’re proud of this strong commitment and proud to be recognized by the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce.”
