Chamber Accreditation

Chamber Accreditation

The United States Chamber of Commerce awarded the Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce with 4-Star Accreditation for its sound policies, effective organizational procedures, and positive impact on the community. “Accreditation validates a chamber as having programs that benefit their local economy and for positively influencing action in their community,” said Raymond P. Towle, IOM, CAE, U.S. Chamber Executive Director of Political Affairs and Federation Relations.  “We applaud these organizations for advancing the principles of free enterprise.” Of the 7,022 Chambers in the U.S., 207 of these are accredited. These elite chambers represent the top 3% of all Chambers in the United States. The Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce first received accreditation in 1989. “The Chamber is honored and credits the involvement of our membership and communities for this distinction,” says Linda Hearn, IOM, Calhoun County Chamber Manager. Accreditation is the only national program that recognizes chambers for their effective organizational procedures and community involvement. In order to receive Accreditation, a chamber must meet minimum standards in their operations and programs, including areas of governance, government affairs, and technology. This extensive self-review can take 6-9 months to complete. By earning Accreditation from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Chambers show their dedication to reviewing, improving, and promoting strong business practices, recognizing leadership and outstanding contributions to the community, and establishing best practices and staying in-step with industry changes. Local chambers are rated Accredited, 3-Stars, 4-Stars, or 5-Stars, and final determination is made by the Accrediting Board, a committee of U.S. Chamber board members. In 2015, the Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce accreditation designation moved from 3-Stars to 4-Stars. The Calhoun County Chamber was noted with special recognition for advocating for its business and community in Government Affairs, leading the community in technology implementation, fostering excellent relationships with local media and received perfect scores in Program Development and Facilities. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.

Accredited Alabama Chamber of Commerce Distinction

In 2015, The U.S. Chamber of Commerce awarded the Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce with 4-Star Accreditation for its sound policies, effective organizational procedures, and positive impact on the community. Just this week, the Chamber of Commerce Association of Alabama (CCAA) awarded seven chambers the Accredited Alabama Chamber of Commerce distinction, including the Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce. The announcement was made during the state’s CCAA summer conference. According to CCAA’s program description, “The Accredited Alabama Chamber of Commerce program sets standards of excellence for chambers in the State of Alabama. It recognizes chambers that have achieved those standards while offering guidelines for those to improve their effectiveness.” The designation looks at six standard topics: Organization, Mission Focus, Professional Administration, Financial Management, Communications, and, Advocacy. Jeremy L. Arthur, President and CEO of the CCAA, said the seven local chambers of commerce are a true testament to the chamber profession. “The accreditation process is very rigorous and highlights that each chamber is truly the ‘best of the best’ across our state,” Arthur said. “The commitment shown by each local chamber that receives the Accredited Alabama Chamber of Commerce distinction shows their continued commitment to the highest professional standards and assures their business members they are investing in an organization working on their behalf for the greater good.” “The Chamber is honored and credits the involvement of our volunteers, our membership and communities for this distinction,” says Linda Hearn, IOM, Calhoun County Chamber Manager.
