BG Area Chamber of Commerce Wins Communications Excellence Award



The Bowling Green Area 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). 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 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-fifth year.

The Bowling Green Area Chamber of Commerce received an Award of Excellence for its 2018 Annual Report which was listed in the publication’s category. The work of the marketing department at the Chamber represents communications excellence in the chamber profession. The Annual Report highlighted the success of our partners and community, from the 100 ribbon cuttings to honoring our Targeted Businesses and Industries.

“It is important for our Chamber to provide beneficial content highlighting our partners because we wouldn’t be the organization we are without them,” said Maureen Carpenter, Vice President of Partnership Services. “The Annual Report is a comprehensive overview of our 2018 Chamber and Economic Development success.”

A panel of communications and marketing professionals from six 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. With more than 160 entries submitted in 2019, judges recognized 10 entries as Grand Award winners and 41 as Award of Excellence winners. Three Best in Show awards will be announced July 15 at the ACCE Annual Convention in Long Beach, California.
