paducah chamberPADUCAH, Ky. (7/19/17) — The Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce has been named the 2017 Chamber of the Year by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives for category 2. The announcement was made during the ACCE National Convention awards ceremony Tuesday, July 18 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Accepting the award was Sandra Wilson, Chamber President; Tammy Zimmerman, 2017 Chair of the Board; Bruce Wilcox, 2016 Chair of the Board and Bryan Carner, 2015 Chair of the Board.

“We are thrilled and honored to be named Chamber of the Year,” said Sandra Wilson, president of the Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce. “We wouldn’t be here without the hard work of our members, volunteers, our Chamber board and our staff. Being selected as a Chamber of the Year is a great way to celebrate a record breaking 2016 and we are thrilled to be recognized on the national level.”

The Chamber of the Year award involves a multi-stage process including a detailed operations survey, application and interview. Only select chambers nationwide are asked to compete beyond the operations survey. The application process also includes submitting detailed information and case studies on programs and initiatives. Finalists are then named based on scoring of the in-depth application process. From there, each finalist undergoes a 45-minute interview before a panel of four judges at the National Convention.

In 2011 the Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce was awarded the Chamber of the Year by the ACCE. The Paducah Chamber is also 4-Star Accredited Chamber by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and a Kentucky Certified Chamber.
