The Greater Tomball Area Chamber of Commerce (GTACC) garnered two wins in communications contests, when chambers from across the state convened June 25, 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, including Outstanding Chamber Map, Outstanding Brochure, Outstanding Magazine or Directory, Excellence in Print or Electronic Newsletter, Outstanding Chamber Website, Excellence in Social Media Marketing and Communications, and Outstanding Marketing Campaign.
In the categories of Outstanding Magazine and Outstanding Chamber Map, GTACC was honored as one of the best in Texas, winning second place in both categories.
“This is an extremely tough competition,” said Bruce Partain, TCCE Media Awards Chairman. “Rest assured that the chambers that won these awards faced stiff competition from their fellow chambers of commerce. It truly means the Greater Tomball Area Chamber of Commerce is one of the very best in 2012 with its magazine and map.”
The overall competition had more than 200 entries from which the best were judged by panels of experts.
“One of the primary responsibilities for a chamber is to promote the organization, community and that chamber’s members,” said Beth Journeay, TCCE incoming chair and president of the Angleton Chamber of Commerce. “By winning these awards the GTACC can be held up as an example of the best at promoting the chamber, its businesses and providing excellent information to people in the greater Tomball area.”
“It was a complete staff effort in working to achieve this recognition,” GTACC President Bruce Hillegeist said. “We always strive to provide great tools and quality products that reflect well on Tomball and our business members.”
