Dan Schmitt, 2017 Henrico Community of the Year Award Recipient
The annual Community Leader of the Year Award, presented by ChamberRVA’s Henrico Business Council, honors an unsung Henrico County hero who has made a positive difference in the community and demonstrates unwavering support, dedication and enthusiasm for the betterment and growth of the county.
This year the award is being presented to Dan Schmitt, President and founder of RMC events. Since its inception, Dan has guided RMC Events from a staff of 8 to over 1,800 and from 16 events in 1999 to over
to over 7,000 events in 2016 throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia.
However, what earned Dan this award is what he has provided to the Henrico community through the Glen Allen Youth Athletics Association, a 4,000+ member organization offering programs for youth between the ages of 4 and 18. This organization primarily serves youth of Henrico County, but also represents western Hanover County, City of Richmond and western Chesterfield County, extending the impact of Dan’s efforts beyond his home county. Glen Allen Youth Athletics Association offers programs for youth in baseball, softball, and basketball in accordance with guidelines set forth by national and international youth sports organizations, and Dan has lead the revitalization efforts on the association’s four ball fields.
