The Greenville Chamber has been named a winner of an industry award that recognizes communications and marketing work. Presented annually by Alexandria, Va.-based Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives, the Communications Excellence awards program is designed to celebrate exceptional work in the areas of advertising and marketing, campaigns, digital and publications.
The Greenville Chamber received an Award of Excellence for its Accelerate brochure. The brochure was produced for the 2016 relaunch of Accelerate, the Chamber’s private sector fueled economic development initiative focused on growing new corporate headquarters, preparing the workforce for 21st century opportunities, increasing the number and performance of minority-owned businesses, and leading transformative projects.
A panel of peers — communications and marketing executives from chambers of commerce around North America — evaluated submissions and selected top entries to receive recognition. Award-winning entries represent the work of 41 organizations in 23 U.S. states and the Cayman Islands.
“Communicating effectively is vital for chambers of commerce and grabbing attention is becoming increasingly challenging. This year’s award-winning entries represent work that’s not only effective, but incredibly creative and innovative,” said Ben Wills, director of communications and marketing for the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives. “Communications professionals at chambers of commerce work tirelessly to promote businesses in the community they serve and the unique characteristics that make their state or region a top place to live, work and play.”
