Chamber executive honored at association conference
February 14, 2012
Betty “B” Gorman, president/CEO of the TahoeChamber recently was recognized as an Accredited Chamber Executive (ACE) by the Western Association of Chamber Executives (W.A.C.E.).
The designation is awarded to only those chamber executives who meet stringent criteria set by the association’s board of directors.
Gorman was one of nine chamber of commerce executives awarded accreditation this year at the association’s annual conference in Las Vegas.
The accreditation program was first awarded in 1993 to encourage chamber executives to upgrade and expand their skills through continuing education and training programs in the chamber management and business fields. There are currently 44 ACE recipients active in chambers of commerce in the West.
Recipients of the Accredited Chamber Executive must apply for re-accreditation every five years to retain the designation.
W.A.C.E. is an association of approximately 800 chamber executives and staff professionals with members in 14 Western states, the largest state or regional association of chamber of commerce executives in the United States.
