Gwinnett Chamber Named ACCE ‘Chamber of the Year’

The Gwinnett Chamber was awarded the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE) ‘Chamber of the Year’ designation during this week’s annual ACCE conference in Salt Lake City. This is the first time the Gwinnett Chamber has received this honor, and one of only two times in the organization’s history where it was selected as a finalist in the program.

“We are honored and humbled to have been named this year’s Chamber of the Year by our industry peers,” said Nick Masino, President and CEO of the Gwinnett Chamber and Partnership Gwinnett. “We also want to recognize the numerous members, investors, partners, and community leaders who contributed to this achievement and say thank you for working with us to champion business to national and global recognition.”

Gwinnett Chamber Board Chair and President of Axis Dean Collins added, “This recognition comes just one year after the Gwinnett Chamber’s first-ever, five-star accreditation from the U.S. Chamber, affirming the ongoing strength of our leadership and purpose to drive economic growth for our community.”

Gwinnett Chamber executives further attributed the organization’s success to Georgia’s ongoing best-in-class business environment.

“Local Chambers of Commerce play a key role in keeping Georgia the No. 1 state for business,” said Governor Brian Kemp. “We appreciate what the Gwinnett Chamber does to bring more jobs and opportunity to the state and congratulate them on being named ACCE’s Chamber of the Year!”

Exemplary leadership, organizational strength, and profound impact in key areas such as education, transportation, economic prosperity, and quality of life were among the reasons cited for the Gwinnett Chamber’s recognition. The organization’s Leadership Team was in attendance to the awards ceremony held during the ACCE Conference.

“We applaud the Gwinnett Chamber and all of this year’s winners and finalists on their efforts to demonstrate catalytic leadership and advanced business solutions for our ever-changing economic landscape,” shared ACCE President and CEO Sheree Anne Kelly.
