Harrisburg Regional Chamber & CREDC Receives Award for Communications Excellence

Video claims top national honor among peers

HARRISBURG, PA (June 1, 2023) The Harrisburg Regional Chamber & CREDC was recognized by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE) as a 2023 Video Award of Excellence winner. The Chamber’s video highlighting a member business was named the best video nationally in the Chamber’s peer category.

“We are incredibly excited and grateful for this national recognition of our video campaign,” said Harrisburg Regional Chamber & CREDC President & CEO Ryan Unger. “This video perfectly showcases who we are as an organization: collaborative, inclusive, and unapologetically positive storytellers. Through the collaborative work of our member businesses and the Chamber, we were able to showcase our relationships with our members and what we can do for businesses on an individual level that lifts the entire community.”

The Chamber was recognized as one of 12 winners of Communication Excellence. ACCE’s Awards for Communications Excellence program, generously supported by Meta, is designed to showcase the top communications and marketing work of chambers of commerce and similar organizations.

The video project was led by Chamber & CREDC Communications Director Tyler Schwind. The video was produced by Searcher Films and the marketing of the video was managed by PRworks.

ACE Awards are judged by industry peers. This year’s panel was comprised of 14 U.S.-based chamber communications and marketing professionals. Entries were organized by category — based on the chamber’s annual revenue — and entry type: campaigns, print, and electronic publications, videos, and websites and apps.

“Chambers of commerce play a critical role in driving success for their communities,” said ACCE President & CEO Sheree Anne Kelly. “Chambers are natural conveners, sharing stories that inspire and spur action. That creativity in communications, paired with catalytic leadership and visionary thinking, is what earned them this well-deserved recognition.”

The 12 winning entries will now go on to compete for the Best in Show title within their total annual revenue category. The three winning entries will be revealed at ACCE’s annual convention in Salt Lake City during the August 1 Awards Show.
