ACCE uses a five factor equation based on the numbers submitted in Dynamic Chamber Benchmarking to determine an applicant's competition category (1–4). This process insures that all applicants will be competing against chambers of commerce of similar size and capacity.
All state and Canadian province chambers will automatically be placed in the state/province category.
