ACCE uses a four factor equation based on the numbers submitted in Dynamic Chamber Benchmarking to determine an applicant's competition category (1–4). It is at the judges discretion to use other data points to insure 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.
