FRANKFORT, Ky. (May 2, 2013) — Commerce Lexington Inc. received recognition from the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce Executives (KCCE) for Outstanding Print Communications – Newsletter (Business Focus magazine), Outstanding Publication (President’s Update) and Outstanding Special Event (Kentucky Regional Tour) among local chambers of similar size. The Excellence Awards were given out during the KCCE Annual Spring Conference last week in Frankfort.
With a circulation of 5,000 copies monthly, Commerce Lexington’s Business Focus magazine is now in its 21st year of informing chamber members about upcoming news, programs, events and services that help them succeed.
In late 2011, Commerce Lexington developed a piece called the President’s Update, a concise update from President and CEO Bob Quick to the organization’s board of directors and top investors in a well designed format.
In 2009, Commerce Lexington revived a long-ago tradition of visiting other regions of the commonwealth. The Kentucky Regional Tour takes representatives from the Bluegrass Region to other parts of the state by bus to listen and learn from leaders in those communities.
