The Bossier Chamber of Commerce was recognized on Monday evening as the 2018 LACCE Chamber of the Year, in the Large Chamber Category.
Recognized for their strong work in advocacy in 2018 as well as their partnership with the City of Bossier City and the Bossier Parish Police Jury on the Be Bossier campaign, the Bossier Chamber was awarded the highest honor by the Louisiana Chamber of Commerce Executives at the organization’s Annual Conference and Awards dinner on Monday, Sept. 24 at Margaritaville Resort Casino.
