Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce Among Top Three Finalist in ACCE 2016 Chamber of the Year CompetitionJune 14th, 2016 by gainesvillechamber
Chamber of the Year Award recognizes the dual role chambers have in leading both businesses and communities.
For a consecutive year, the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives has ranked the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce in the top three 2016 National Chamber of the Year finalists among similarly sized chambers. The award designates that recognized chambers have demonstrated not only organizational strength in operations and member services, but also have shown community leadership by impacting priorities such as education, transportation, business development and quality of life.
Winners in each of the five award categories will be announced at ACCE’s Annual Convention, Aug. 9-12 in Savannah. To see the full list of finalists, click here.
Since 2007, ACCE has annually recognized up to four chambers of commerce in various size categories with the award. In 2014, the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce received 5-star accreditation from the United States Chamber of Commerce, a designation held by less than one percent of all Chambers in the country.
