Richmond, Ind. – For the second year in a row, the Wayne County Area Chamber of Commerce finds itself in the Indiana top ten list among its peers. This time, it placed sixth in the state.
The Indiana Chamber Executives Association (ICEA) presents the Chamber of the Year award at its annual conference. Chambers reaching a certain score when evaluated by out-of-state judges make it into the list of finalists. There were nine finalists this year. Ultimately, Zionsville took home the top prize.
“It is such an honor to be recognized at the state level for the work of our Chamber here in Wayne County,” said President and CEO Melissa Vance. “When there are 154 Chambers in Indiana, to be ranked sixth is a big deal. We have a great team working alongside an outstanding board and community partners,” she added.
Last year, the Chamber was in the top ten and Vance was among four finalists for Chamber Executive of the Year. She will, however, be quick to say these recognitions are not their “why” – they are simply a result of serving their mission. The success of member businesses and growth of the community remain the focus of the organization.
“It is clear that together we can make meaningful impact!” Vance concluded.
