Greater North Fulton Chamber Achieves “Georgia Certified Chamber” Designation
North Fulton, GA (January 5, 2022) – The Greater North Fulton Chamber of Commerce (GNFCC) has been designated a Georgia Certified Chamber by the Georgia Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (GACCE) through a program designed to celebrate and recognize chambers of commerce throughout the state that meet exceptional standards of excellence in organization, service intent and capacity, professional administration, financial management, communications, and advocacy.
Since the program launched in 2011, GACCE has awarded the prestigious Certified Georgia Chamber designation to just over 50 of the more than 150 chambers of commerce across the State of Georgia. In the 2022 class, GNFCC was joined by seven other chambers in becoming a Georgia Certified Chamber. This accreditation also comes on the heels of the GNFCC receiving 5-Star Accreditation through the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, for its sound policies, effective organizational procedures, and positive impact on the community.
“GACCE congratulates the Greater North Fulton Chamber on this outstanding accomplishment,” said Cindy Williams, chair of the GACCE Board of Directors. “Chambers of Commerce have long been called upon to lead their communities forward in innovative and dynamic ways. Georgia Certified Chambers have demonstrated that they are expertly positioned to make a profound impact in their area of service. Therefore, this designation as a Georgia Certified Chamber is worthy of celebration by the entire business community, recognizing that GNFCC is among the elite across the State of Georgia.”
“This designation from GACCE, along with the national accreditation we received last year, are a testament to the incredible levels of excellence and service demonstrated by the Greater North Fulton Chamber staff team and leadership,” said Danielle Cheung, 2023 chair of the GNFCC Board of Directors. “I am excited to see the ways this level of success will continue to position both the Chamber and the North Fulton region for future success, growth and prosperity.”
“I am incredibly proud to receive this designation and the light this shines on the great work being done across the entire organization by our talented and dedicate team,” said Kali Boatright, President and CEO of GNFCC. “Since I joined this organization more than four years ago, we have been hyper focused on continuing to elevate and grow the impact of our organizational excellence and our mission to grow business, develop talent and drive regional prosperity – and this is an exciting milestone on our journey.”
Boatright and Cheung officially received the Georgia Certified Chamber award during GACCE’s 2022 Board Development Conference in Cordele, Georgia in November of 2022.
