The Michigan Association of Chamber Professionals (MACP) named the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce (LRCC) as a finalist for the 2017 Outstanding Chamber of the Year Award during the MACP’s annual chamber convention in October.
The award recognizes organizational excellence in chambers of commerce and provides a unique benchmarking opportunity to assess a chamber’s strengths.
“We are proud to be a community partner dedicated to helping employers and businesses grow by providing business education and networking opportunities, enhancing member visibility and advocating for public policy that supports economic growth and vitality,” said Deb Muchmore, LRCC’s board chair.
The award is based on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce accreditation process for local chambers; it highlights accomplishments in the areas of leadership, governance, finance, advocacy and membership development.
“We boldly embrace our regional leadership role and make it our top priority to support our members and promote programs and initiatives that encourage economic growth and job creation in the Greater Lansing region, “said Muchmore.
Michelle Rahl, LRCC’s director of business development, added, “The success of our members is our business. The Chamber works relentlessly to deliver value and provide the tools and resources to help our members grow and thrive.”
LRCC has been helping businesses in mid-Michigan connect, grow and succeed for over 110 years. In 2016, the LRCC had a total membership of 1,000, with a retention rate in the top 10 percent nationally. For more information about LRCC membership and benefits, visit lansingchamber.org.
