U.S. Chamber of Commerce Awards Miramar Pembroke Pines Regional Chamber of Commerce with 4-Star Accreditation
PEMBROKE PINES, FL. — November 13, 2023 — The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has awarded the Miramar Pembroke Pines Regional Chamber of Commerce with its designation of Accredited with 4 Stars for its sound policies, effective organizational procedures, and positive impact on the community.
“Chambers of commerce that achieve an Accreditation designation are truly leaders in their industry” said Raymond P. Towle, U.S. Chamber Vice President, Federation Relations and IOM. “When chambers of commerce earn the distinction of becoming Accredited, it is a mark of excellence for the organization, its staff, and its leadership. This rigorous review includes all aspects of a chamber’s policies, operations, and programming, and Accredited chambers are recognized for their ability to serve as a resource to their region’s businesses while maintaining transparent governance practices, sound financial controls, safe work environments, effective communications, and value in programming. They are commended for their continued advocacy of free enterprise, and for their commitment to serving members and their local businesses. Congratulations on this tremendous accomplishment.”
The purpose of the U.S. Chamber's Accreditation Program is to facilitate continuing excellence in the chamber industry and to foster a pro-business environment across America. In order to receive Accreditation, a chamber must meet minimum standards in their operations and programs, including areas of governance, government affairs, communications, and technology. This extensive self-review can take 6 to 12 months to complete.
"The Miramar Pembroke Pines Regional Chamber of Commerce is proud to have earned the prestigious Accreditation with 4 Stars from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce,” said Patty Archer, Chamber President. “This recognition reaffirms our commitment to excellence and solidifies our position as a leader in the chamber industry. We take immense pride in upholding the highest standards in policies, organizational procedures, and community impact. This accreditation is a testament to our dedicated staff and visionary leadership, showcasing our ability to serve as a valuable resource to our region's businesses. As advocates for the South Broward business community, we are honored to receive this mark of excellence, reinforcing our mission to contribute to the prosperity of our local businesses and foster a pro-business environment.”
Local chambers are rated Accredited, 3-Stars, 4-Stars, or 5-Stars. The final determination is made by the Accrediting Board, a committee of U.S. Chamber board members. The Miramar Pembroke Pines Regional Chamber has been Accredited since 2011, and this marks its second reaccreditation.
Today and into the future, the Chamber is energized about the opportunity to bring innovation and progress to the community by being a Catalyst for business growth, a Convener of leaders to implement positive Change, and a Champion for strong communities.
