OWENSBORO, Ky. (July 24, 2017) — The Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce won an industry award recently that recognizes outstanding communications and marketing work.
Presented annually, the Communications Excellence awards program is designed to celebrate exceptional work in the areas of advertising and marketing, campaigns, digital and publications.
The Owensboro Chamber received an Award of Excellence for their GOChamber Red Tape Reduction magazine cover. The cover highlights the Chamber’s focus on advocating for the removal of unnecessary regulations in order to create new job opportunities and stimulate the economy.
The cover features Jigna Wilson of Wilson Family Pharmacy, Adam Hancock of Riney Hancock CPAS and Leigh Ann Kuegel of Kentucky Farm Bureau.
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 represented the work of 41 organizations in 23 U.S. states and the Cayman Islands.
“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.”
GOChamber is a collaboration between the Chamber Staff and Tanner-West.
