Mount Pleasant/Titus County Chamber of Commerce Awarded Three Stars bu U.S. Chamber of Commerce

Accreditation with the United States Chamber of Commerce is the only program of its kind that defines excellence in chamber planning and recognizes chambers for outstanding contributions toward positive change in their communities. The purpose of the U.S. Chamber’s Accreditation Program is to facilitate continuing excellence in the chamber industry and to foster a pro-business environment across America.

There are over 800 chambers that have participated in the program since 1964. Currently, 213 chambers carry this distinction. With aproximately 7,000 chambers in the United States, Accreditation with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is a prestigious honor that distinguishes the high quality, expertise, and strong leadership displayed by Accredited state and local chambers of commerce.

WHY BECOME ACCREDITED?

By earning Accreditation from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, a chamber shows its dedication to:

  • Reviewing, improving, and promoting strong business practices
  • Recognizing leadership and outstanding contributions to the community
  • Supporting the principles of free enterprise and promoting pro-growth policies at federal, state, and local levels
  • Establishing best practices and staying in-step with industry changes

“Accreditation validates a chamber as having programs that benefit its local economy and positively influence its community,” said Raymond P. Towle, IOM, CAE, U.S. Chamber vice president of Federation Relations and Institute for Organization Management. “We applaud these organizations for advancing the principles of free enterprise.”

Local and regional chambers are rated “Accredited,” “Accredited with 3 Stars,” “Accredited with 4 Stars,” or “Accredited with 5 Stars.” State chambers are rated “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 and chamber CEOs from across the country.

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.

Rep Bryan Hughes visits with Chamber members at Business After Hours

Chamber members received an unlikely surprise at the “Fun” Business After Hours sponsored by Buddy Marshall Insurance on Thursday September 24, 2015 when District Five State House Representative Bryan Hughes walked into the banquet room at the Mount Pleasant Country Club. He briefly introduced himself, what he does and then opened to floor for questions. It was a great way for Chamber members to see that their voice is being heard!
