Auburn Hills Chamber Recognized as Outstanding Michigan Chamber


LANSING — The Michigan Association of Chamber Professionals recognized the Auburn Hills Chamber of Commerce, lead by executive director Denise Asker, with a 2014 Outstanding Chamber of Commerce Award at their annual leadership conference and meeting.

“The Auburn Hills Chamber of Commerce received this award based on its accomplishments in leadership and governance, financial stewardship, business advocacy, and member programming,” says Bob Thomas, director for the Michigan Association of Chamber Professionals. “Among the chamber’s noted achievements were the demonstration of financial stewardship required to grow from a small chamber to a mid-size chamber, its innovation in programming for women, its collaboration with other non-profits in the area, and the commitment to excellence in its governance structures.”

The Outstanding Chamber of Commerce award — modeled after the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Accreditation process for recognizing best industry practices — is presented to chambers of commerce that achieve high scores on a comprehensive application judged by chamber of commerce professionals from other state associations around the country.
