GRAND RAPIDS – The Grand Rapids Chamber of Commerce has been named a winner of two national industry awards. Presented annually by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives, the Communications Excellence awards program is designed to celebrate exceptional work in the areas of advertising and marketing, campaigns, digital and publications.
The GRACC received an Award of Excellence for the GR Chamber Rebranding Campaign, as well as the Breakfast with Legislatures Bacon Video Series. The GR Chamber will accept the awards at the annual ACCE convention award night on Wednesday, July 18 in Des Moines, Iowa. This is the fifth year in a row that the GRACC has been a recipient of a Communications Excellence award.
“Through our thoughtful rebranding efforts, the Grand Rapids community has seen and felt the changes within the Chamber,” said Rick Baker, President and CEO, Grand Rapids Chamber. “Our new office is providing our members with space to collaborate, connect and grow their business. Our marketing efforts have been a visible reflection of the growth and positive changes within our organization.”
The Grand Rapids Chamber partnered with local agency, Highland Group, to determine the direction and execution of the Chamber’s new messaging, collateral material, and brand reflection within their new office location. A panel of peers — communications and marketing executives from chambers of commerce around North America — evaluated submissions and selected top entries to receive recognition.
