CINCINNATI, Ohio (Aug. 14, 2014) — Commerce Lexington was recognized as one the top chambers of commerce in the country during the American Chamber of Commerce Executives’ (ACCE) Centennial Conference in Cincinnati, Ohio. The organization competed in and was a finalist for the Chamber of the Year award in Category 4, which represents the largest chambers of commerce in the U.S.
During an awards program last night, Commerce Lexington Inc.

ACCE reported a record number of applications for Category 4, which also included the Association of Washington Business, Boise (Idaho) Chamber of Commerce, and the Toledo (Ohio) Regional Chamber of Commerce.
ACCE’s Chamber of the Year is the nation’s only award recognizing the dual role chambers have in leading businesses and communities.
