ORLEANS, MA (June 17, 2017) — The Orleans Chamber of Commerce has been named a winner of two industry awards that recognize communications and marketing work. Presented annually by Alexandria, Va.-based Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives, the Communications Excellence awards program is designed to celebrate exceptional work in the areas of advertising and marketing, campaigns, digital and publications.
The Orleans Chamber received two Awards of Excellence for its 2016 edition of Truly Orleans, their lifestyle magazine and travel guide, and their national campaign to garner votes for the Coastal Living America’s Happiest Seaside Town contest, where Orleans finished as the runner up.
A panel of peers — communications and marketing executives from chambers of commerce around North America — evaluated submissions and selected top entries to receive recognition.
Award-winning entries represent the work of 41 organizations in 23 U.S. states and the Cayman Islands. Of the 49 award-winning entries in 2017, 12 are recognized as Grand Award winners and 37 are recognized as Award of Excellence winners. Three Best in Show awards will be announced at a special event Tuesday, July 18 in Nashville, Tennessee.
“Communicating effectively is vital for chambers of commerce and grabbing attention is becoming increasingly challenging. This year’s award-winning entries represent work that’s not only effective, but incredibly creative and innovative,” said Ben Wills, director of communications and marketing for the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives. “Communications professionals at chambers of commerce work tirelessly to promote their members, businesses in the community they serve, and the unique characteristics that make their state or region a top place to live, work and play.”
