WebLink Has Sponsored the Annual Competition Since 2013

INDIANAPOLIS (June 14, 2017) – On Tuesday, the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives announced the finalists of the 2017 Chamber of the Year competition. WebLink is proud to sponsor the annual competition, which seeks to honor Chambers of Commerce that achieve excellence in operations, member services and community leadership.

Fifteen finalists have been chosen for this year’s competition, including WebLink partner Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce. See the full list here.

“We love seeing organizations who are a part of the WebLink family represented in competitions like this,” said Director of Customer Success Jacque Shaffer. “Charleston Metro is a fantastic group and very deserving of the recognition. We wish them good luck in the final stages!”

Each year contestants go through a multi-stage process to be selected as a finalist, including meeting a minimum threshold in at least three of five key performance areas, an application and an interview. Competing organizations are placed into categories to ensure fairness, based on total revenue, member accounts, service area population, number of businesses in the service area and restricted revenue as a percentage of total revenue.

Applications are evaluated by a judging committee consisting of association executives and winners from previous years’ competitions.

Leaders representing each of the 2017 finalist chambers will participate in the final phase during ACCE’s annual conference in Nashville, Tennessee, July 16-19. A judging committee will conduct in-person interviews with each leader and name one winner from each category.

WebLink would like to congratulate all finalists on this momentous honor, and looks forward to joining ACCE and chamber executives from across the country as the winners announced at this year’s ACCE Annual Convention.
