Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

The Greater Macon Chamber of Commerce has been named an “Award of Excellence” winner in the Communications Excellence awards program presented by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives. ACCE, an Alexandria, Va.-based association, represents more than 8,000 chamber of commerce professionals, and 1,300 chambers of commerce, around the world.

ACCE’s annual Awards for Communications Excellence, sponsored by Golden Openings, Inc., 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-fourth year.

The GREATER MACON CHAMBER OF COMMERCE received an Award of Excellence for its 2017-2018 Annual Report.

President/ CEO with the Greater Macon Chamber of Commerce, Mike Dyer, says “it is a huge honor to have the Annual Report recognized nationally. The Chamber is committed to being the voice of business by implementing key initiatives and successful programs. It is reassuring to know that our mission is relevant not only here in Macon, but to chambers nationwide. These chambers will potentially look to our chamber’s work in the community as inspiration for what can be done in their communities. This is the first year the Greater Macon Chamber of Commerce has created the Annual Report in-house, so to receive this recognition is an even greater honor.”

A panel of communications and marketing professionals from five U.S.-based 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. More than 150 entries were submitted in 2018.
