The Tri-M Group, LLC, was awarded the Community Impact Award by the Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce at the annual Inspirational Breakfast. The Community Impact Award is a new award created by the Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce and was presented for the first time this year. 

The Community Impact Award was initiated by Erik Gudmundson, SCCCC past chairman of the Board (Pegasus Technologies, LLC), who was instrumental, along with the Chamber’s executive committee, in forming a special task force to oversee the award process.  To qualify for the award, the task force looks at volunteer hours, nonprofit board leadership, in-kind contributions, financial donations, and non-profit impact. 

“The purpose of the Community Impact Award is to recognize a Chamber member business that positively impacts our community through active support of local non-profit organization and philanthropic causes,” said Gudmundson. “Through Tri-M’s impressive, longstanding contributions including volunteer hours, nonprofit board leadership, in-kind contributions, and financial donations, Tri-M makes Southern Chester County a better place to live, work, and play. We’re grateful to have them in our community.”

Based in West Grove, the Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce is the region’s leading member-business organization. Chamber membership consists of nearly 500 member businesses from a myriad of industries and includes many non-profit organizations. The Chamber was founded in 1929, and Tri-M has been a member of this organization for 51 years. “More than ever, it is critically important for the business community to support our local nonprofits,” said Cheryl B. Kuhn, SCCCC CEO. “It matters to recognize the businesses that give back and offer relief to the issues most affecting us – especially in times of strife. For this, we are proud to recognize The Tri-M Group.”

Tri-M received the award on June 17 at Hartfield National Golf Club. Jim Horn, the president and CEO, accepted the award on behalf of the Tri-M Group.
