ACCE Staff on Tuesday, July 23, 2019 at 12:00:00 am

On July 15, at the #ACCEAwards Show in Long Beach, California, three organizations — Greater Dalton Chamber of Commerce (Ga.), Greater Bentonville Area Chamber of Commerce (Ark.) and Greater Fort Wayne Inc. (Ind.) — were recognized as this year’s Best in Show winners in ACCE’s Awards for Communications Excellence competition.

They represent the finest entries in each of the three total annual budget categories: under $1 million, $1 to $3 million and above $3 million.

ACCE’s Awards for Communications Excellence program is designed to showcase top communications and marketing work of chambers of commerce and similar organizations. Several thousand award entries have been submitted since the launch of the organization’s Awards for Communications Excellence, which is now in its thirty-fifth year.

“Those involved in marketing and communications for chamber organizations must develop materials that can compete with Fortune 500 companies, with half the staff and budget,” says ACCE President and CEO Sheree Anne Kelly. “These annual awards provide a way to recognize the innovative work that chambers across the world are creating. It is not every day that a company’s communications work not only benefits the organization but is creates materials that advance the community or region that they support.

A panel of communications and marketing executives from six North American chambers of commerce evaluated entries, which were organized by category — based on the chamber’s annual budget — and entry type: advertising and marketing, campaigns, digital and publications.
