Tulsa Regional Chamber Named National Finalist for Chamber of the Year Award

The Tulsa Regional Chamber has been named as a finalist for the 2020 Chamber of the Year award, presented by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE).
The Tulsa Regional Chamber is a three-time former recipient of this award, having previously been named the nation’s best chamber in 2005, 2008 and 2010, as well as having been a finalist for the award in 2018.
“As an organization dedicated to excellence and continuous improvement, our chamber is honored to be in the running once again for the most prestigious award in our industry,” said Mike Neal, president and CEO of the Tulsa Regional Chamber.
The Chamber of the Year award is the most competitive recognition presented annually by ACCE, an association of more than 9,000 professionals from 1,500 chambers of commerce, including 93 of the top 100 U.S. metro areas.
“We at the Tulsa Regional Chamber are proud to stand as finalists alongside our friends at the Greater Gainesville Chamber of Commerce in Florida and the Greater Irving-Las Colinas Chamber of Commerce in Texas,” said Neal. “Because the awards process is peer-judged by fellow chamber professionals, recognition is especially meaningful for all of us.”
The Chamber of the Year award recognizes the leadership role chambers have in their communities. Those honored with the Chamber of the Year designation have demonstrated organizational strength and made an impact on key community priorities, including education, transportation, economic prosperity and quality of life.
“Being considered for honors such as this is possible because of the tireless efforts of the Tulsa Regional Chamber’s staff, the commitment of its volunteer leaders, and the collaboration from partners and investors,” said Roger Ramseyer, vice president and Tulsa market leader for Cox Communications, and 2020 chair for the Tulsa Regional Chamber.
To ensure the fairest competition, chambers are grouped into four categories based on annual revenue, membership, area population and other factors. The Tulsa Regional Chamber competes within the category for largest chambers.
The Chamber of the Year award winners will be announced later this year.
