AWB was one of three finalists in the category of largest chamber association, falling just a few points shy of taking home the first-place award.
The other two chambers in the running for the award were the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce, which took home the top prize, and third place went to the Georgia Chamber of Commerce.
“It is truly an honor to be recognized for the second straight year as one of the top chambers in the country,” said AWB President Kris Johnson, who was at the event to collect the award. “Last year marked the first time in ACCE history that a state chamber of commerce was a finalist for the Chamber of the Year recognition. To achieve this distinction two years in a row is unprecedented.”
The award honors both organizational strength and the impact chambers have on key community priorities, particularly education, transportation, business development and quality of life.
AWB hopes to take home the top prize at the 2016 awards event.
