What are the secrets to successful innovation? "Crossing disciplines and keeping current," says CBIC executive director and Gala co-chair, Tracey Greene, noting the Gala does both. "We invite our region's technology innovators, entrepreneurs, teachers and community leaders to join together and share the magic of innovation."

Thursday, May 29, will be the magic moment for lucky Charlottesville leaders who win CBIC Awards.
