Nov. 2. The Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce has won the Outstanding Chamber of the Year from the Carolinas Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives.

The CACCE award, which primarily focuses on acknowledging one or more significant accomplishments during the past 18 months, took notice of the Lake Norman Chamber’s contributions to regionalism. “They were practicing regionalism when it was just another word,” the CACCE said.

The professional development organization serves both North Carolina and South Carolina chambers.



“I am so very excited as this is an award which represents every element  of our chamber—the 2014 and 2015 boards, the past leadership and achievements, as well as our current membership—and our staff,” said Lake Norman Chamber CEO Bill Russell.

The Lake Norman Chamber focuses on the three towns of North Mecklenburg: Cornelius, Davidson and Huntersville. “It is also exciting for CACCE and the awards committee to recognize the regional aspect of our programming efforts.  That isn’t always easy when you have several communities each vying for their own unique identities,” Russell said.

The actual presentation of the award will take place 5:30 pm Nov. 16 at Port City Club. Russell is inviting 2014 board members who are not on this year’s board as well as past chairs. “Any recognition of our chamber in 2015 could not have been possible without the efforts of those who worked to lay that groundwork,” Russell said.
