Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce Wins Communications Excellence Award for Second Straight Year

The Rogers-Lowell 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 Chamber received an Award of Excellence for its 2019-20 The Good Life Destination Guide, an annual relocation and visitors guide produced in-house by Chamber staff that is sent to stakeholders across the state of Arkansas and region. The 2018-19 edition of the publication also received an Award of Excellence.
 
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.
