| July 17, 2011 | 0 Comments

Do you know of an employer who hires individuals with disabilities? If so, let the Anne Arundel County Commission on Disability Issues know about this company. The commission is seeking nominations of employers who hire individuals with disabilities to be honored at the annual disABILITY Awareness Day 2011.

“Like last year, disABILITY Awareness Day 2011 will be held Oct. 29 during Disability Employment Awareness Month in October at Westfield Annapolis mall. At the event County Executive John R. Leopold and the Commission will recognize, among several categories, employers who hire individuals with disabilities,” says Ginger Palmer, commission chairman, of Edgewater.

“This is a tribute to those businesses that diversify their workforce,” says County Executive Leopold. “Their hiring of individuals with disabilities contributes to their business success and helps those individuals to have better lives.”

Nomination forms are available at the Anne Arundel County Americans with Disabilities Act office at the Anne Arundel County Department of Aging and Disabilities, 2666 Riva Road, fourth floor, in Annapolis; by calling 410-222-4383, or by visiting the Commission’s website at www.aacounty.org/Aging/disabledAdults/CommDis.cfm. TTY users, please call via Maryland Relay 711.

Please note that nominations are due Aug. 12, 2011.
