The Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives has named the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce as a finalist for its 2024 Chamber of the Year award among more than 1,600 chambers representing more than 9,000 industry professionals.

The award is the most prestigious and competitive recognition presented annually by ACCE, recognizing the leadership role chambers of commerce play in their communities. 

"This year's finalists represent the best in the chamber industry," said ACCE President and CEO Sheree Anne Kelly in a news release. "They are community leaders and innovators, driving growth and regional prosperity."

Chamber of the Year winners will be announced on Wednesday, July 17, during the ACCE annual convention in Dallas.

To compete for the award, chambers of commerce must qualify by participating in a multi-stage process, which includes meeting minimum thresholds in at least three of five key performance areas in ACCE’s Annual Chamber Operations Survey. 

Applications are scored by peer chamber executives to determine finalists, and winners are selected based on an interview before a panel of chamber professionals. Applicants are grouped into four categories based on annual revenue, membership area population and other factors.
