This section contains surveys, research, and reports relevant to chambers of commerce -- both from ACCE survey initiatives and outside sources. ACCE relies on our members for suggestions and contributions, so please use this form to provide suggestions.


These anonymous polls are launched several times a year, usually with 3-10 questions that take only minutes to answer. They provide a snapshot of what other chambers are doing or experiencing.

Dynamic Chamber Benchmarking

ACCE’s Operations and Salary Surveys are now combined into one powerful new platform, free to ACCE members. The Operations Survey section provides chambers with information that can be used to establish comparisons and benchmarks with similar chambers of commerce; the Salary Survey (avilable to CEOs or their delegate) offers members the most accurate and reliable compensation information for the chamber industry. Ready to get started? Log in with your ACCE username and password. (If you don’t know your login, request it here.) For more information, including how to work with fiscal years, downloading reports, using the comparison feature, working with the filter options, and more, please see Working with Dynamic Chamber Benchmarking. You can also download our Quick Start Guide and view our HERO Webinar schedule.
