The GACCE Georgia Certified Chamber Program is designed to promote public awareness of the intent of the chamber of commerce brand as a not-for-profit community development-based business membership organization by providing a peer review process of generally accepted chamber of commerce organizational benchmarks.
- The program is 100% voluntary. There is no requirement to participate.
- Any Chamber that is currently accredited through the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is exempt from all application requirements with proof of current accreditation.
- Any GACCE member Chamber of Commerce may apply.
GACCE follows the U.S. Chamber model, and the designation needs to be reapplied for every five years.
The application process is now open for 2019. The application deadline will be Friday, June 28, 2019. Please click the link below for the new packet:
