Community Rankings

Chambers often have a love-hate relationship with rankings. Communities love to announce when they’re ranked in the top 10 cities to raise a family or attract young professionals and often fight rankings that list their city as the worst place to open a small business or as the most dangerous city in America. Chambers have to talk out of both sides of their mouth, using good rankings to promote their city and using bad rankings to urge lawmakers to make changes.
