Winner to be Unveiled at National Conference in September
MADISON – Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC) was selected as one of three finalists for the State Chamber of the Year Award, presented by the Council of State Chambers (COSC).
The State Chamber of the Year Award provides recognition to state-based Chambers of Commerce who have distinguished themselves by providing exceptional services and results for their members. Finalists were selected because they demonstrated excellence in one or more of the following categories: Public Policy; Political Engagement; Membership and Development; Organizational Development; Best Communications Program; and Membership Services.
“It is extremely humbling to be selected among our peers as a finalist for State Chamber of the Year,” said WMC President & CEO Kurt R. Bauer. “This would not be possible without the dedication of WMC’s volunteer Board of Directors, a diverse membership from every corner and industry in Wisconsin and, of course, an extremely talented staff that is dedicated to making Wisconsin businesses stronger, safer and more competitive.”
WMC is joined by the Arizona Chamber of Commerce & Industry and the Missouri Chamber of Commerce & Industry as an award finalist. The winner will be announced at the COSC Annual Meeting in Denver on Sept. 25.
COSC is the national organization for state chambers. The purpose of COSC is to promote cooperation among state chambers of commerce, strengthen existing state chambers and promote the extensions of the state chamber of commerce movement throughout the country. The State Chamber of the Year Award has been presented to a top-performing state chamber since 2016.
