NORTHWEST METROPORT CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
NAMED RECIPIENT OF NATIONAL COMMUNICATIONS EXCELLENCE AWARD
Roanoke, TX (June 22, 2017) — The Northwest Metroport Chamber of Commerce has been named a winner of an industry award that recognizes communications and marketing work. Presented annually by Alexandria, Va.-based Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE), the Communications Excellence awards program is designed to celebrate exceptional work in the areas of advertising and marketing, campaigns, digital and publications.
The Northwest Metroport Chamber received an Award of Excellence for its revamped chamber website, NWMetroportChamber.org.
A panel of peers — communications and marketing executives from chambers of commerce around North America — evaluated submissions and selected top entries to receive recognition.
Award-winning entries represent the work of 41 organizations in 23 U.S. states and the Cayman Islands. Of the 49 award-winning entries in 2017, 12 are recognized as Grand Award winners and 37 are recognized as Award of Excellence winners. Three Best in Show awards will be announced at a special event Tuesday, July 18 in Nashville, Tennessee.
“It is an honor to win an Award of Excellence from the ACCE. We are excited to be recognized for our chamber website and to rank among entries submitted by some of the best chambers of commerce across North America,” said Northwest Metroport Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Sally Michalak.
“Communicating effectively is vital for chambers of commerce and grabbing attention is becoming increasingly challenging. This year’s award-winning entries represent work that’s not only effective, but incredibly creative and innovative,” said Ben Wills, director of communications and marketing for the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives. “Communications professionals at chambers of commerce work tirelessly to promote their members, businesses in the community they serve, and the unique characteristics that make their state or region a top place to live, work and play.”
This year's competition attracted entries from chambers of commerce in the United States and the Cayman Islands.
