Congratulations to the winners of this year’s Membership Achievement Awards! These chambers of commerce (listed alphabetically) are in the top 10 for their total revenue range in one or more of these categories: member retention of accounts, member retention of dollars, or new member retention of accounts. These statistics were compiled from ACCE’s Fiscal Year 2017 Operations Survey via Dynamic Chamber Benchmarking (DCB). DCB is open year-round for survey participation, but for the Membership Achievement Awards, chambers who submitted FY 2017 data through March 23, 2018 were eligible for the awards.

Dollars listed based on the chamber’s annual revenue
