Bossier Chamber receives LACCE accredited chamber designation

The Bossier Chamber of Commerce has received the LACCE Accredited Chamber designation for 2019.

In 2016, the Louisiana Chamber of Commerce Executives (LACCE) Board of Directors sought a way to recognize chambers in the state that have focused internally on their operations to assess their strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities to create efficient, effective organizations positioned to deliver great value.  Thus, the LACCE Accredited Chamber program was created.

The purpose of the program is to facilitate continuing excellence in the chamber industry and to foster a pro-business environment across the state.  Chambers must meet standards in organization, service intent and capacity, professional administration, financial management, communications, and advocacy to achieve the designation.

With over 75 chambers of commerce in the State of Louisiana, one chamber was recognized as the newest LACCE Accredited Chamber during the Awards Ceremony of the 2019 LACCE Annual Conference held at the Golden Nugget Casino in Lake Charles on Monday, Sept. 9. The designation reflects a prestigious honor that distinguishes the high quality, expertise, and strong leadership displayed by accredited chambers. This chamber now makes up a total of 14 chambers of commerce that have been recognized with this distinction over the past three years.
