Last week at the annual #ACCEAwards Show, nearly one thousand chamber professionals and friends of the industry gathered at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center in downtown Long Beach, California, to celebrate winners of many special awards, including Chamber of the Year. 

Chamber of the Year, sponsored by MemberClicks, is the most prestigious and competitive award presented by ACCE and is the only globally-recognized industry award that honors top chambers of commerce. This year's winners (sorted by category) are:

Category One:

Murray-Calloway County Chamber of Commerce 
Murray, Kentucky


Category Two:

Longview Chamber of Commerce
Longview, Texas

Category Three:

Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce

Category Four:

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, business development and quality of life. 

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, including net revenue, net assets, membership account retention, and membership dollar retention.

Qualifying for Chamber of the Year is a rigorous process. Chambers compete based on meeting key performance criteria on the ACCE Annual Operations Survey. 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 in-person interview before a panel of experienced chamber professionals.
