    Longview Chamber Of Commerce Recognized For Media and Communications Excellence

League City, TX—Local Chambers from across the state of Texas convened Wednesday night June 20, 2017, for the Texas Chamber of Commerce Executives (TCCE) Annual Excellence Awards.  The awards honor organizations for exceptional efforts in marketing, communications and media outreach.  Awards are judged in seven separate categories:  Social Media Marketing and Communications, Brochures, Chamber Map,   Magazine or Community Guide, Print /Electronic News, Outstanding Chamber Website, and Outstanding Traditional Marketing Campaign.  

In the category of Brochures the Longview Chamber of Commerce was honored as the best in Texas, winning second place for its Membership Application Brochure.  

“This competition brings out the best of the best from chambers of commerce in Texas” said Page Michel, TCCE Vice-Chairman of Communications whose division oversees the process.  “The process is rigorous and quite competitive given the number of entries and the exceptional work presented by each. Rest assured this year’s winners demonstrated their best.  A victory tonight truly indicates the Longview Chamber of Commerce is the best in 2017 in Brochures.”

The overall competition had more than 200 entries from which the best were judged by panels of experts in the specific field around the state.  “This honor demonstrates the incredible work done by the Longview Chamber of Commerce organizationally and in the community” said RaDonna Hessel, 2017 TCCE Board Chairman and CEO of the Grapevine Chamber of Commerce.

“The Chamber is often the voice of the community promoting the organization, the members and the community as a whole”, said Hessel.  “By winning this award the Longview Chamber of Commerce can be held up as an example of the best at promoting the chamber, its businesses and providing excellent information to people in Longview.”

“Chambers of Commerce are the voice of business and quite often the communities they serve,” said Aaron Cox of TCCE.  “This highly competitive process demonstrates how these organizations fulfill this task with excellence daily, often with little or no accolades.  This award demonstrates the exceptional work carried out by the Longview Chamber of Commerce and provides them well deserved recognition.”
