Grapevine, TX—Local Chambers from across the state of Texas convened Tuesday, June 19, 2018 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 Marketing Campaigns, the Greater Mission Chamber of Commerce was honored as one of the best in Texas, winning second place for their “Go Mission” shop local campaign.
“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 Greater Mission 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 Kelly Hall, 2018 TCCE Board Chairman and CEO of the Longview Chamber of Commerce. “This type of recognition is indicative of the great work, creativity and innovation that exists in these chambers, Congratulations to all!”
