Anna Salick, U.S. Chamber of Commerce Manager, Northwest Region presented on Friday, July 20th the 5-Star Accreditation to the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce. Tara Nethercott, Board Chairman accepted the award on behalf of the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce and expressed during the presentation her gratitude to the Chamber Staff and investors for their continued support and dedication to make the accreditation possible.
"The Accreditation process is voluntary and for your Chamber to take the time to do this self assessment speaks volumes. Not only did they complete the audit, but were awarded the highest level of distinction, a 5-Star Accreditation. This has only been awarded to 116 Chambers. To put this into perspective there are roughly 7,000 Chambers in the United States," Salik shared during the presentation.
This is a true honor for the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce and an accomplishment made by the businesses, over 1,000 in the area who invest in the organization. Assessed through the process were 8 areas measured on effectiveness, ability and overall performance. Having this distinction reflects that the Chamber Staff take their role in the community seriously and are strong stewards of the business community.
"I learned through the whole process that a team of 7 experts in our office, along with the strength and talents of our business community, we can accomplish anything," expressed Vice President of the Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce, Stephanie Joy Meisner-Maggard. "I am proud to serve the business community as part of the Chamber team and most certainly honored to receive this achievement."
