Nashville has top Chamber of Commerce in U.S.

The Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce won the American Chamber of Commerce Executives' Chamber of the Year award, making it the top chamber of commerce in the nation. The award recognizes the top chambers in the nation for organizational excellence including financial, member services and connections, engagement of volunteers and leading communities by making an impact on key priorities. The business group's overall organizational performance qualified the organization to apply for the award in the largest chamber category. A "Nashville for All of Us" community coalition and the development of "A Leading Edge," a suite of programs designed to help members manage through the recession, were among programs highlighted in the Chamber's award application. Other finalists included the Cedar Rapids Area Chamber from Cedar Rapids, Iowa; and Greater Louisville Inc., of Louisville, Ky. The award was presented last week.
