Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage Wins COSE Award

Cleveland’s Newest Museum Recognized again for Excellence

Cleveland, Ohio (October 1, 2008) —   The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage will receive a Ten Under 10 Award from the Council of Smaller Enterprises (COSE), presented at the close of their Small Business Conference on October 23.

In less than three years since opening in late 2005, The Maltz Museum has attracted more than 100,000 visitors (including 20,000 students) from across the region and around the world, created excellent year-round programming, presented world-class exhibitions, and built strong membership and volunteer groups.

The COSE Award honors companies with 10 or less employees for best practices in innovation, growth, success, value to the community and the environment, diversity promotion and customer service excellence.  Small business plays a vital role in the economic development landscape of Northeast Ohio, and this award celebrates those making an impact in the region and recognizes the many success stories within the small business community.  Winners will be featured in a special insert with the November issue of the COSE Update Magazine.
