Cambridge Chamber of Commerce Awarded Highest Level of National Accreditation
The Chamber Accreditation Council of Canada has announced following a detailed review of the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce’s core operations, that the Chamber is Accredited with Distinction.
“Over the past decade, our Chamber Board and Staff have been working tirelessly to not only build our Membership to be one of the largest Chambers in the Country, but to also become an industry leader nationally and internationally,” says Ken Zelazny, Chair of the Board and President of ActionCoach business coaching Cambridge. “This Award and acknowledgement from CACC is a testament to the value our Membership puts on building a strong and professional, business development and advocacy organization in Cambridge.”
Representatives from all levels of the chamber network formed the Chamber Accreditation Council of Canada (CACC) and launched a national accreditation program designed to recognize chambers that satisfy a set of high standards and practices—chambers that seek to stand out, that look to the future.
Accreditation is a formal acknowledgement that member chambers of commerce/boards of trade have been successfully evaluated by the CACC against rigorous national standards of policy, service and performance.
Greg Durocher, President/CEO of the Cambridge Chamber said, “This acknowledgement from the National level is quite obviously, something we are very proud of and demonstrates the commitment we made a number of years ago to build an organization that has a strong, united and passionate voice of ideas, innovation and community building.”
The CACC seal of Accreditation with Distinction ensures that a chamber maintains:
• Strategic focus on core chamber activities.
• Uniform practices, policies across the network.
• Dependable governance procedures.
• Distinctive brand identity. A competitive edge against other business
• A stronger “voice of business” in your community. An increased role in
national and international policy advocacy.
The Cambridge Chamber of Commerce proudly calls itself a Community Based Organization keenly interested in the development of Cambridge as a caring, safe and prosperous community with an abundance of opportunity. We’re proud of our accomplishments in attaining Accreditation with Distinction, and we’ll continue to provide our community with strong and balanced leadership.
