Congratulations to Roddie Anne Blackwell with the Eatonton-Putnam Chamber for being named our 2016 Legacy Award recipient!

Congratulations to Roddie Anne Blackwell (Eatonton-Putnam Chamber) and Tommy Jennings (Barrow County Chamber) for being named Georgia Certified Chamber Executives (GCCE).



GACCE truly does provide excellent resources, tools and connections for the chamber executive.  While president of the Americus-Sumter chamber, GACCE was invaluable to me and later, as a board member, it gave me even more credibility among my peers and my community.  There’s always someone who’s been there…someone who’s smarter than I – and I always knew where to go for answers (and empathy!)

Since entering the chamber profession almost 6 years ago, GACCE has been the best resource for my questions on anything to do with chambers and their operations.  I've been blown away by GACCE and its membership, as they work to make chambers and chamber executives successful within the state of Georgia.

Tommy Jennings
Barrow County Chamber

GACCE has been an excellent resource for our Chamber in terms of professional and organizational development.  The conferences, clinics, and resource guides have helped us grow and strive to constantly improve.

Christie Haynes
Dawson County Chamber

GACCE has been instrumental in helping me hone my professional skills.  Spending time with like-minded pros at GACCE events has made me a better Chamber President and my board has noticed the difference.

Jerry Connell
Adel-Cook County Chamber

GACCE not only provides wonderful opportunities for the professional development of my staff, volunteers, and myself but through GACCE I also have a network of peers available on speed dial to learn from, bounce ideas off of, and to listen.

Paige Green
Gilmer County Chamber

Our Georgia Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives has helped many of our members, including me to stay on top of “cutting edge” programs to improve our communities and especially our professionals. Not only are the variety of seminars and the sessions at our conferences helpful, but the interaction and networking with others helps us to not waste time and money “reinventing the wheel” which is so prevalent in our profession. If you want to change something or try out something “new”, you can almost always be sure it has been tried before and perfected by another member chamber exec somewhere.  You can learn from their experience and revise it to suit your chamber and community and be a “hero”!! GACCE is a great organization and I am proud to be a member and a member of your Board of Directors.

A chance to learn the ropes since most chamber execs. come from other professions.
A chance to meet and learn from some of the best and most respected execs.
A chance to gain a national perspective on chamber trends.
A chance to compare, benchmark, and connect with resources.
A chance to learn best practices and have access to other peers information, knowledge, and experience. (Free R and D – rob and duplicate with permission)
GACCE creates the opportunity to re-charge, renew, and inspire each of us at regional and statewide gatherings. Simply put, GACCE equips us with the knowledge, information, resources, contacts, and encouragement to help us be the best chamber professionals we can be.
