  • Chamber Receives 4 Star Accreditation

    The United States Chamber of Commerce today (November 5, 2015) awarded the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce with 4-Star Accreditation for its sound policies, effective organizational procedures, and positive impact on the community. This prestigious honor puts the Charlotte County Chamber among the top 3% of chambers nationwide.

    “Accreditation validates a chamber as having programs that benefit their local economy and for positively influencing action in their community,” said Raymond P. Towle, IOM, CAE, Vice President, Federation Relations and Institute for Organization Management. “We applaud these organizations for advancing the principles of free enterprise.”

    Accreditation is the only national program that recognizes chambers for their effective organizational procedures and community involvement. In order to receive Accreditation, a chamber must meet minimum standards in their operations and programs, including areas of governance, government affairs, and technology. This extensive self-review can take 6-9 months to complete.

    “We were thrilled to receive the call today that we were re-accredited with a 4-star ranking,” said Julie Mathis, executive director of the Charlotte County Chamber. “In the report, it was noted that the Chamber ‘established itself as an advocate for its local business community.’ The Board, staff and our members should all be extraordinarily proud of this milestone achievement. Our work is a true team effort.”

    Local chambers are rated Accredited, 3-Stars, 4-Stars, or 5-Stars. State chambers are recognized as either Accredited State Chamber or Accredited State Chamber with Distinction. The final determination is made by the Accrediting Board, a committee of U.S. Chamber board members.

    The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.
