MONTGOMERY— The Chamber of Commerce Association of Alabama announced Aug. 6 that nine Alabama chamber professionals received the Accredited Alabama Chamber Executive distinction.
Kirk R. Mancer, executive director of the Greater Shelby County Chamber of Commerce, was one of the nine individuals to receive the distinction.
The announcement was made at the CCAA’s summer convention in Orange Beach to recognize the professional competence of chamber of commerce executives in the state of Alabama. The AACE designation is based on the experience, service to CCAA, training, continuing education and professional achievement of CCAA members.
“All of the individuals receiving their accredited chamber professional designation are to be commended for receiving this prestigious distinction,” said Brian Hilson, president and CEO of the Birmingham Business Alliance and the CCAA’s 2015 Chairman of the Board of Directors. “They most certainly represent the highest standards in our profession.”
The AACE award is intended to strengthen the career development objectives of CCAA and provide personal recognition to chamber professionals in Alabama. Jeremy L. Arthur, president and CEO of the CCAA, said the nine local chamber leaders are true testament to the chamber profession.
“The accreditation process is very rigorous and highlights that each recipient is truly the ‘best of the best’ across our state,” Arthur said. “The commitment shown by each person that receives the Alabama Accredited Chamber Executive distinction shows their continued commitment to professional development and the overall success of their local chamber of commerce and our collective state association.”
