On Monday June 22, Anderson & Associates Inc. was honored to have special guest Congressman Morgan Griffith meet and speak to employees.
Griffith is one of Virginia’s eleven congressmen and represents the 9th District (Southwest Virginia west from the New River Valley, Clifton Forge, and Martinsville). Griffith was elected in November of 2010, and has since served three consecutive terms. Prior to this he was a member of the Virginia House of Delegates from 1994 to 2011. In 2000, Griffith was the first person in the Virginia House to hold the position of Republican Majority Leader.
A&A was given the opportunity to discuss with Griffith the importance of not only our organization, but the importance of small businesses and ESOPs. A&A’s Zeke Ratcliffe gave a presentation demonstrating the individual value an ESOP has for each and every employee at A&A. Congressman Griffith received the presentation well with an audience of employee owners.
After a discussion of ESOPs, the floor was opened for any other questions employees had for Griffith. Many questions and concerns were mentioned and the Congressman welcomed each and every question with open ears and gave his stance and approach on each matter.
We thank Congressman Morgan Griffith for his visit to A&A and look forward to his next arrival.
