Technology Cooperative Receives Award for Helping Local Businesses Succeed, Investing in the Community and for Supporting Charities
National Information Solutions Cooperative was the recipient of 2013 Business of the Year Award given by the Western St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce. This award is given to a local business that has made an impact in the community. Criteria includes: assisting in helping fellow local businesses succeed, investing in the community and for supporting local charitable organizations.
The Western St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce held its annual awards ceremony at the Celebration Ball on February 1, 2014. The event was held at Progress Park Banquet Center and brought Chamber members, community leaders and residents together.
“The Western St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce is proud to award Business of the Year to National Information Solutions Cooperative (NISC),” said Tony Mathews, President and CEO of the Western St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce. “We wanted to recognize them for their amazing service in the community, assistance in helping fellow businesses succeed and the growth of their business in our area.”
“We have always been more than a technology organization. Our people and Members are the heart of NISC,” said Todd Eisenhauer, Vice President of Engineering and Operations at NISC. “What separates NISC from other organizations is that we have a Statement of Shared Values, and since we are also a cooperative, owned by our Members, NISC embraces the Seven Cooperative Principles. In Principle Seven, Concern for the Community, it states that while focusing on member needs, cooperatives work for the sustainable development of the communities through polices and programs accepted by the members. By playing an active role in our local community we are fulfilling the needs and expectations set forth by being an active cooperative.”
While there were several NISC employees in attendance at the event, it was Jackie Rocha, NISC Manager of Office Services and Facilities, who accepted the award on behalf of NISC. “It was an honor to accept this award on behalf of NISC as 2013’s Business of the Year. It is really great to be recognized, by our fellow Chamber members, as a business that has made a significant impact on our community,” said Rocha. “We have always enjoyed being a part of St. Charles County and are happy to work together with others to strengthen our community.”
