On Tuesday, July 18, the Georgia Chamber was honored by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE) as the 2017 State Chamber of the Year recipient. This annual convention in Nashville draws in chambers from all over the United States and Canada.
Qualifying for Chamber of the Year is a rigorous and lengthy process. Chambers compete based on meeting key performance criteria, and enter the competition with a written application addressing all aspects of organizational operation and programmatic work. Applications are scored and winners are selected based on an in-person interview before a panel of experienced chamber professionals.
“We’re proud of this affirmation that our engaged investors, talented staff, local chamber partnerships, and our world-class networks who continue to lead Georgia forward,” said Georgia Chamber President & CEO, Chris Clark.
Along with receiving State Chamber of the Year, the Georgia Chamber took home Lifetime Achievement awards for reaching exceptional sale’s goals and a Communications Excellence award for both their 2030 initiative and use of infographics throughout the winning application.
