S-S Chamber receives accreditation from Carolinas Chamber Association

Chapel Hill, NC – The Carolinas Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (CACCE) recognized the 2016 recipients of the Carolinas Accredited Chamber designation at their Annual Management Conference at the Sheraton Hotel in Chapel Hill, NC on October 20, 2016. 
Four chambers of commerce were honored as the recipients of this prestigious designation for 2016:
Blowing Rock (NC) Chamber of Commerce
Boone Area (NC) Chamber of Commerce
Greater Smithfield-Selma Area (NC) Chamber of Commerce
North Augusta (SC) Chamber of Commerce 

The CACCE Carolinas Accredited Chamber program sets standards of excellence for chambers in North and South Carolina.  It recognizes chambers that have met those standards while offering guidelines for others to improve their effectiveness.  The program follows the U.S. Chamber model, and it shows that a chamber has gone through a detailed analysis of what and where they are as an organization.

This group joins three chambers that were recognized last year, bringing the total number of Carolinas Accredited Chambers to 24.    
CACCE is the professional development organization dedicated to providing educational opportunities for chamber of commerce executives and staff members in North Carolina and South Carolina.  CACCE equips chamber of commerce professionals with leadership skills and tools to build innovative chambers. The organization was formed in 1994 when the North Carolina and South Carolina state chamber associations merged.  For more information on CACCE, or any of CACCE’s conferences or programs, contact Tiffany Fulmer Ott at (404) 312-0524.
