Oct. 2, 2018 – Georgia Chamber of Commerce Named 2018 State Chamber of the Year

By Lou Phelps, Coastal Empire News

The Council of State Chambers, (COSC) named the Georgia Chamber of Commerce the 2018 State Chamber of Year at its annual award ceremony held in New Orleans, Louisiana.

“I am proud to say for the second year the Georgia Chamber has been named Chamber of the Year by two accrediting organizations,” said Georgia Chamber President & CEO, Chris Clark. “Our success is the result of hard work and dedication of our investors, Governmental Affairs Council, Board Members, local chambers and staff who have been instrumental in our efforts to strengthen our organization and represent the state of Georgia as the largest business advocacy organization”

From Coastal Georgia, Board members include Ruel Joyner, owner and president of 24e Design Co; Jennifer Abshire, president of Abshire PR; and Jon Pannell of Gray, Pannell & Woodward, LLP, all of Savannah. 

The State Chamber of the Year recognizes member-chambers who have demonstrated exceptional leadership and measurable success over the course of the last year, legislative session, or election cycle in areas of achievement including, Public Policy, Political Engagement, Membership and Development, Best Communications Program, and Membership Services. The selection of the State Chamber of the Year is a thoroughly vetted, three-stage process consisting of application review, finalists interview, and awards ceremony in which finalists and recipients are selected by a panel of three experienced chamber professionals.

The Georgia Chamber was recognized for the success of their current 8 for 18 initiative, which serves as a statewide prosperity agenda and nonpartisan resource that seeks to inform elected officials, political candidates, and voters on a series of policy recommendations and issue areas that are critical to Georgia’s economic future. The Chamber has successfully used this 8 for 18 platform to showcase their top priorities for 2018, statewide endorsements, and candidate assessments taken by candidates for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Secretary of State.

The annual State Chamber of the Year award highlights innovative initiatives and best practices that advance state chamber’s mission and efforts to provide deserved recognition to state chambers and their leaders who have distinguished themselves by providing exceptional services and results for their members and communities.
