GACCE Certified Chamber
GACCE Announces 2018 Class of Georgia Certified Chambers
In 2011, the GACCE Board of Directors sought a way to recognize chambers in the state that have focused internally on their operations to assess their strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities to create efficient, effective organizations positioned to deliver great value. Thus, the Georgia Certified Chamber program was created.
The purpose of the program is to facilitate continuing excellence in the chamber industry and to foster a pro-business environment across the State of Georgia. Chambers must meet standards in organization, service intent and capacity, professional administration, financial management, communications, and advocacy in order to achieve the designation.
With over 150 chambers of commerce in the State of Georgia, the eight chambers that were recognized as Georgia Certified Chambers during the Opening Luncheon of the 2018 GACCE Volunteer Leader Conference held at the Columbus Convention & Trade Center in Columbus, GA on Thursday, November 15 received a prestigious honor that distinguishes the high quality, expertise, and strong leadership displayed by accredited chambers. These chambers make up a total of 57 chambers of commerce that have been recognized with this distinction over the past seven years.
The following chambers of commerce make up the 2018 class of Georgia Certified Chambers:
- Augusta Metro Chamber of Commerce
- Bainbridge-Decatur County Chamber of Commerce
- Dublin-Laurens County Chamber of Commerce
- LaGrange-Troup County Chamber of Commerce
- Madison-Morgan County Chamber of Commerce
- Moultrie-Colquitt County Chamber of Commerce
- Roberta-Crawford County Chamber of Commerce

GACCE congratulates these chambers for their accomplishment!
