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.
The Nacogdoches County Chamber of Commerce received two 2nd place honors in its category. The 17th Annual Agriculture Appreciation & Awareness Banquet brochure designed by Ramona Keith at TFP Nutrition was recognized in the Outstanding Brochure division, and the 2018 Nacogdoches Guide & Chamber Directory published by Point A Media was recognized in the Outstanding Magazine or Directory division.
“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 Nacogdoches County 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!”
