Lubbock Chamber of Commerce Receives Highest Accolade

Lubbock’s Chamber of Commerce has earned top honors once again.

The group has been named as the American Chamber of Commerce Executives Chamber of the Year, during the organization’s national conference.

Lubbock’s Chamber received the accolade last week in Louisville, Kentucky. The Chamber of the Year award is the nation’s only award that recognizes Chambers of Commerce for their role within their communities.

“We are elated to bring this exceptional honor home to our members,” said Lubbock Chamber of Commerce Chairman Tim Collins. “This award is an indication of the quality of our members, volunteers, and staff. It is our members who have made the Chamber what it is today, and we are more than proud to serve them.”

According to a press release from the Lubbock Chamber, Chambers that receive this designation have “not only demonstrated success in community leadership and organizational strength, but also have made an apparent impact on key community priorities, like education, transportation, healthcare, and cultural vitality.”

Competitors for the award in the $1,000,0000 – $1,999,999 Total Revenue Category were the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce in North Dakota and Minnesota, and the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce in Ohio.

Lubbock’s Chamber won this award in 2008, and ACCE rules prohibit a chamber from applying within four years of winning the title, making 2012 the first opportunity since then for the group to apply again.

The Chamber was required to complete an interview process during the conference. The application included sections on “Chamber Wellness,” a partnership between the Chamber, iaWellness and FirstCare Health Plans, as well as Chamber University, their business education seminar series.
