After being honored with ACCE's Life Member Award during ACCE's annual convention in Los Angeles this year, Frank Ryll needs to make room on his shelf for yet another award.

The Florida Association of Chamber Professionals (FACP) recognized industry legend, Frank M. Ryll, Jr., with the inaugural Pillar Award, at the 91st Annual Conference, held October 4-6, 2011, in Destin, Fl. The award was created by the FACP Board of Directors to recognize an industry leader who has demonstrated a commitment to the Chamber profession that epitomizes the characteristics of a pillar, strength and support. 

Asthe inaugural recipient of the award, Frank has devoted a lifetime of work within the chamber profession. Frank’s service started in Florida and then continued in Greenville, South Carolina.  Frank later returned to Florida and set upon a legendary career, familiar to most with The Florida Chamber of Commerce, that has been recognized and celebrated nationally.

“I had the privilege of working side by side with Frank for the past few years,” stated The Greater Brandon Chamber of Commerce and FACP President & CEO, Tammy C. Bracewell, during her presentation of the award.  “What a true pleasure and blessing Frank has been to me both professionally and personally.”

Upon presentation of the award, it was noted that the FACP Board decided to name the award in Frank’s honor, as the Frank M. Ryll, Jr. Pillar Award.
