National organization recognizes two Kentucky chambers as 2019 Chamber of the Year
On Monday, two local chambers of commerce in Kentucky were named 2019 Chamber of the Year in their categories by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE).
Greater Louisville Inc. (GLI) and the Murray-Calloway County Chamber of Commerce both won the 2019 Chamber of the Year in their respective size categories.
The award is given by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE) and the organization only invites a limited number of the 7,000 chambers in the nation to apply. The application process involves a rigorous review of a chamber’s structure, finances, member engagement, services and programs.
The Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce was also a finalist for the award in their category this year.
On Tuesday, Kentucky Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Dave Adkisson applauded the success of the two local chambers.
“Kentucky has had more winners, finalists, and entries for national chamber awards than any other state in the country. We are so proud of this successful record in the Commonwealth and congratulate Greater Louisville Inc. and the Murray-Calloway County Chamber of Commerce on their well-deserved wins this week,” Adkisson said.
