Rowan Chamber qualifies for national award

Rowan County Chamber of Commerce

The Rowan County Chamber of Commerce has qualified for a national award through the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE). 

The award is called the ACCE Chamber of the Year award and recognizes chambers for being above the national average in their 2015 membership and non-dues income categories. ACCE’s Chamber of the Year is the only award recognizing the dual role chambers have in supporting businesses and leading communities.

Chambers honored with the Chamber of the Year designation have not only demonstrated success in business leadership and organizational strength, but also have made an impact on key community priorities such as education, transportation, healthcare and cultural vitality.    

The Chamber of the Year competition is a three-step process. The Rowan Chamber has qualified for the award and is now invited to complete an application highlighting chamber successes. The finalist will be interviewed and a winner will be announced at the ACCE conference in August 2016.

“We are honored to have qualified for this national award,” said Elaine Spalding, chamber president. “We have an active Board of Directors, wonderful volunteers, an engaged membership, and a hard working staff.”    

The Rowan Chamber is a not-for-profit business advocacy organization with more than 850 member firms. Benefits include business advocacy, member referrals, community development, leadership training and networking events.

For more information, please contact the Rowan Chamber at (704) 633-4221 or info@rowanchamber.com.
