Congratulations, 2024 Chamber of the Year Finalists!

We are excited to share the announcement of Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE)’s 2024 Chamber of the Year finalists. As the official Chamber of the Year sponsor, GrowthZone is especially proud as nine of the 12 named use GrowthZone or ChamberMaster software.

The Chamber of the Year award recognizes the leadership role chambers of commerce have in their communities. Those honored with the designation have demonstrated organizational strength and made an impact on key community priorities, such as education, transportation, economic prosperity, and quality of life.

“This year’s finalists represent the best in the chamber industry,” said Sheree Anne Kelly, ACCE president & CEO. “They are community leaders and innovators, driving growth and regional prosperity. We congratulate them on this outstanding achievement.”

The award involves a multi-stage process, which includes the Dynamic Chamber Benchmarking process, an extensive application, and an interview.  Winners of the Chamber of the Year award must wait three years before submitting another application. To ensure the fairest competition, applicants are grouped into four categories based on annual revenue, membership, staff capacity, area population and other factors.

Since 2007, ACCE has annually recognized chambers of commerce in various size categories for their work leading businesses and communities with the Chamber of the Year award. The award recognizes excellence in operations, member services, and community leadership.

Chamber of the Year winners will be announced on Wednesday, July 17, during the awards show at ACCE’s Annual Convention in Dallas.
