The Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce was named an Award of Excellence winner in the Communications Excellence awards program presented by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE) at the July annual convention in Des Moines, Iowa. ACCE, an Alexandria, Va.-based association, represents more than 8,000 chambers of commerce professionals, and 1,300 chambers of commerce, around the world. ACCE’s annual Awards for Communications Excellence (ACE) is designed to showcase top communications and marketing work of chambers of commerce and similar organizations. Several thousand award entries have been submitted since the launch of the organization’s Awards for Communications Excellence, which is now in its thirty-fourth year. The Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce received an Award of Excellence for its 2018-19 publication The Good Life Destination Guide produced internally by the Chamber and Visit Rogers. “Visit Rogers and the Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce are thrilled to be honored with the ACCE 2018 Award of Excellence,” said J.R. Shaw, Executive Director for Visit Rogers. “The Good Life Destination Guide represents the very best that Rogers and the region have to offer as a world-class destination for business, relocation, retirement and tourism. The collaboration and hard work between the two organizations proved to be an asset in producing this award-winning publication.” A panel of communications and marketing professionals from five U.S.-based chambers of commerce evaluated entries, which were organized by category — based on the chamber’s annual budget — and entry type: advertising and marketing, campaigns, digital and publications. With more than 150 entries submitted in 2018, judges recognized 13 entries as Grand Award winners and 41 as Award of Excellence winners.
