U.S. Chamber Awards Minot Area Chamber of Commerce with 3-Star Accreditation
3 Star

 
The United States Chamber of Commerce, at its board meeting this week, awarded the Minot Area Chamber of Commerce with 3-Star Accreditation for its sound policies, effective organizational procedures, and positive impact on the community.
 
“Each day, chambers of commerce across this nation play a critical role in their communities” said Raymond P. Towle, IOM, CAE, U.S. Chamber vice president of Federation Relations and Institute for Organization Management.  “From connecting business owners with needed resources, to advocating on behalf of their region with lawmakers, these chambers convene thought leaders to strengthen the collective voices of their members.”
 
Accreditation is the only national program that recognizes chambers for their effective organizational procedures and community involvement. In order to receive Accreditation, a chamber must meet minimum standards in their operations and programs, including areas of governance, government affairs, and technology. This extensive self-review can take 6-9 months to complete.
 
“This is an honor for the Minot Area Chamber of Commerce, as we are one of only two accredited chamber in North Dakota,” said President John MacMartin.  This is the first time our Chamber has received a star rating and we are proud to have reached that milestone.”
 
Local chambers are rated Accredited, 3-Stars, 4-Stars, or 5-Stars. State chambers are recognized as either Accredited State Chamber or Accredited State Chamber with Distinction. The final determination is made by the Accrediting Board, a committee of U.S. Chamber board members.
 
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.
 
It is the mission of the Minot Area Chamber of Commerce to PROMOTE business, leadership and growth with emphasis on population, quality of life, education, and entrepreneurship within the greater Minot area;  to UNIFY the community on leadership and economic issues and to be inclusive of the greater Minot area and REGION.
