Greater Killeen Chamber of Commerce Recognized for Media and Communications Excellence
Local Chambers from across the state of Texas convened Wednesday, June 20, 2017 for the Texas Chamber of Commerce Executives (TCCE) Annual Excellence Awards. The awards honor organizations for exceptional efforts in marketing, communications and media outreach. Awards are judged in seven categories: Outstanding Chamber Map, Outstanding Brochure, Outstanding Magazine or Directory, Excellence in Print or Electronic Newsletter, Outstanding Chamber Website, Excellence in Social Media Marketing and Communications, and Outstanding Marketing Campaign.
In the category of Directories/Community Profiles the Greater Killeen Chamber of Commerce was honored as the best in Texas, winning first place.
“Chambers of Commerce are the voice of business and quite often the communities they serve,” said Aaron Cox of TCCE. “This highly competitive process demonstrates how these organizations fulfill this task with excellence daily, often with little or no accolades. This award demonstrates the exceptional work carried out by the Greater Killeen Chamber of Commerce and provides them well-deserved recognition.”
The overall competition had more than 200 entries from which the best were judged by panels of experts. “This prestigious honor is cause for the staff, members and community to celebrate,” said RaDonna Hessel, 2017 TCCE Board Chairman and CEO of the Grapevine Chamber of Commerce. “This type of recognition is indicative of the great work, creativity and innovation that exists in these chambers, Congratulations to all!”
