As a proud member of the Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce, we are thrilled to share that JHCC has earned a 5-Star Accreditation from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. This prestigious honor places the JHCC among the top 1% of chambers nationwide. The JHCC is the only accredited chamber in the state of Wyoming and one of just four 5-Star Accredited chambers in the region (Wyoming, Colorado, Idaho, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Utah). Out of nearly 7,000 chambers in the country, only 102 have earned this distinction.
“Accreditation validates a chamber as having programs that benefit their local economy and for positively influencing action in their community,” said Raymond P. Towle, IOM, CAE, Vice President, Federation Relations and Institute for Organization Management. “We applaud these organizations for advancing the principles of free enterprise.”
JHCC President/CEO Jeff Golightly commented, “Chambers are reflections of their members and we’re proud to build a first-class chamber that represents our hard-working community.” He continued, “Our staff, volunteer board of directors, and volunteer committee members are dedicated to the success of the JHCC to the benefit of all of our members.”
The JHCC earned 4-Star Accreditation in 2012. Based on recommendations and best practices, the JHCC took action to make improvements.
JHRE Associates Partner and JHCC Board Chair Julie Faupel commented, “Our dynamic all-volunteer Board of Directors is committed to the JHCC’s mission to champion the interests of local businesses and we’re thrilled that this 5-Star Accreditation validates our efforts.”
