    LOCAL CHAMBER PUBLICATION WINS REGIONAL AND NATIONAL AWARDS
     
    This year, the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce took home both a regional and national award for their 2015 Calendar & 2014 Annual Report. 
     
    On April 23, 2015, the Carolina Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (CACCE) recognized the 2015 Calendar & 2014 Annual Report for a Communication Excellence Award in the Publication Category for a chamber with 700 members and over.  Entries were judged based on originality, design and quality, and results achieved. 
     
    The Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce is also the 2015 recipient of the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives’ (ACCE) Grand Award for Communications Excellence in the Publication category for chambers with less than $1 million in revenue. The award for the 2015 Calendar & 2014 Annual Report will be presented during ACCE’s Annual Convention, held this year in Montreal, Canada, August 11-14.
     
    “Chambers are often the catalyst for community advancement, and they communicate not only with their business constituents, but also with the broader populations of the towns, cities or regions they serve,” says Mick Fleming, ACCE president. “These awards spotlight excellence in content, design, execution, and most importantly, the positive outcomes chambers create as they go about the work of coordinating efforts that benefit communities.”
     
    A communications team of four, the Chamber’s CEO, and Chamber member graphic designer, Linda Graham Design, worked together to design the 2015 Calendar & 2014 Annual Report.  The calendar was distributed at the Chamber’s Annual Meeting and also mailed to the primary representative of nearly 1,300 Chamber members.
     
    Copies of the 2015 Calendar & 2014 Annual Report are free and available to both Chamber and community members by stopping by the Chamber office, located at 104 S. Estes Dr. in Chapel Hill.
