Vail Valley Partnership a finalist for national award

AVON — The Vail Valley Partnership was recently named a finalist for this year’s Chamber of the Year by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives. Chamber of the Year is the nation’s only award recognizing the dual role chambers have in leading businesses and communities. Chambers honored with this award have not only demonstrated organizational strength, but also have made an impact on community priorities including education, transportation, business development and quality of life.

“We are honored to receive this recognition for the second consecutive year,” Vail Valley Partnership President and CEO Chris Romer said. “It speaks volumes to our chamber programming, our collaborative community efforts, the dedication of our staff and the commitment of our volunteer leadership.”

Award Qualifications

Only chambers meeting specific benchmarks are invited to participate in the national organization’s multi-step application process. Organizations entering the Chamber of the Year competition must meet minimum thresholds in at least three of five key performance areas, including net revenue, net assets, membership account retention and membership dollar retention.

The Vail Valley Partnership offers numerous signature programs that help highlight the Vail Valley as a community, including Vail Valley Economic Development, Lodging Quality Assurance, NEXT Vail Valley, Platinum Service Program and the Non-Profit Network. These programs, in addition to member marketing benefits, networking programs, customer service initiatives and collaborative programming including the Vail Valley Merchant Alliance and EGE Air Alliance, help raise the profile of the Vail Valley.
