Last week, American Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE) announced the 2013 Chamber of the Year finalists. WebLink is sponsoring the awards for the second consecutive year.
For those not familiar with the awards, ACCE has been recognizing leading chambers of commerce with the annual award since 2007. The ACCE Chamber of the Year Awards is the nation’s only award program recognizing the dual role chambers have in leading businesses and building communities. Chambers honored with the Chamber of the Year designation have not only demonstrated success in business leadership and organizational strength, but also have made an impact on key community priorities, such as education, transportation, healthcare, and cultural vitality.
All applicants must participate in the ACCE Operations Survey and submit an application sharing financials, membership numbers, communications, and community program success. Chamber professionals and past winners review the applications, and the top three finalists in each category are interviewed at the annual ACCE convention to determine a winner.
This year, there are twelve finalists, broken out into four categories by income level. One winner in each of the four categories will be announced at the annual ACCE Convention July 23-26, 2013 in Oklahoma City.
A special congratulations to the four finalists that are WebLink clients: Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association, Conway Area Chamber of Commerce, Cobb Chamber of Commerce, and Salt Lake Chamber.
We look forward to seeing the winners announced at this year's ACCE Annual Convention! Will you be there?
