BOSTON, MA —
The Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce has been named a finalist for the 2023 Chamber of the Year award, presented by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE). ACCE is an association based in Alexandria, Va., that has over 1,600 chambers of commerce and related business and economic development organizations as members, representing more than 9,000 professionals in the industry.
The award, sponsored by Personify, is the most prestigious and competitive recognition presented annually by ACCE. It recognizes the leadership role chambers of commerce have in their communities. Those honored with the Chamber of the Year designation have demonstrated organizational strength and made an impact on key community priorities, such as education, transportation, economic prosperity and quality of life.
“The Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce is honored to be named a finalist for the 2023 Chamber of the Year Award. Our Chamber team works every day to provide the most impactful programs, initiatives, public policy, and economic opportunity for our members and the Commonwealth. We are proud to be recognized nationally for our work – and the meaningful results – that transforms lives, businesses, and communities,” said James E. Rooney, President & CEO, Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce.
“This year’s finalists truly represent excellence in the chamber industry,” said ACCE President & CEO Sheree Anne Kelly. “Through their roles as community partners, thought leaders and innovative problem solvers, each has demonstrated what it means to be a catalyst for growth and regional prosperity. We congratulate them on this achievement.”
Chambers of commerce interested in competing for the award first must qualify by participating in a vigorous multi-stage process. Organizations entering the Chamber of the Year competition must meet minimum thresholds in at least three of five key performance areas in ACCE’s Annual Chamber Operations Survey, including net revenue and assets, membership account retention and membership dollar retention.
Qualifying chambers enter the competition with a written application addressing all aspects of organizational operation and programmatic work. Applications are scored by peer chamber executives to determine finalists. Winners are selected from among finalists based on an interview before a panel of experienced chamber professionals. To ensure the fairest competition, applicants are grouped into four categories based on: annual revenue, membership, area population and other factors.
Chamber of the Year winners will be announced on Tuesday, August 1, during the Awards Show at ACCE’s Annual Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah.
