GrowthZone is proud to share its excitement about the announcement of the 2022 Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE)’s Chamber of the Year finalists, especially since we know over half of them VERY well—many of the finalists use GrowthZone or ChamberMaster software.
This recognition is the most prestigious and competitive award presented by ACCE and is the only globally-recognized industry award that honors top chambers of commerce. Those honored with the Chamber of the Year designation have demonstrated organizational strength and made an impact on key community priorities.
“This year’s finalists are among the most impactful organizations within the chamber industry,” said ACCE President & CEO Sheree Anne Kelly. “We’re in the midst of a chamber renaissance. Chambers of commerce have never been more essential to regional prosperity and are being called on to serve as partners, thought leaders, and innovative problem solvers in new ways on new issues. Congratulations to our 2022 finalists.”
The Chamber of the Year 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.
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.
The award finalists will be interviewed at the upcoming ACCE Conference, Accelerate Indy, and winners will be announced at the ACCE Awards Show on Wednesday, July 27, 2022.
