The United States Chamber of Commerce, at its board meeting this week, awarded the Frisco Chamber of Commerce with 5-Star Accreditation for its sound policies, effective organizational procedures, and positive impact on the community.
Accreditation is the only national program that recognizes chambers for their effective organizational procedures and community involvement. In order to receive Accreditation, a chamber must meet minimum standards in their operations and programs, including areas of governance, government affairs, and technology. This extensive self-review can take six to nine months to complete.
“The entire Frisco Chamber of Commerce team, board, and members contributed to this accomplishment,” said Tony Felker, President/CEO of the Frisco Chamber of Commerce. “In 2014, we received a 4-star Accreditation on our first attempt ever at accreditation. In the five years since, we have strived to excel and improve in several areas. Knowing that being a 5-star accredited chamber puts us in the top two percent of all chambers is a great accomplishment.”
