Apalachicola Bay chamber wins two awards

On Sept. 23, the Florida Association of Chamber
Professionals held their annual conference in Jupiter, which the Apalachicola
Bay Chamber of Commerce attended via a live stream in during the annual
Communications Awards ceremony.

The awards consist of four categories – Public Relations,
CVB Marketing Materials, Audio Visual Communications, and Membership Marketing
Materials. This year the Apalachicola Bay Chamber of Commerce won in two
categories, one in Public Relations for its Volunteer of the Year award program
and the other for CVB Marketing Materials for the 2021 Butts & Clucks

“I am very proud of the accomplishments of our chamber and
to have our programs and events recognized by the FACP statewide awards program,”
said John Solomon, executive director of the Apalachicola Bay chamber. “It is a
great honor.”

The FACP, committed to leading chamber professionals through
quality and innovative business development, serves over 500 chamber
professionals statewide. The association provides chamber of commerce
professionals with the information, learning and communications skills to carry
out the mission of their chambers. The communication awards are to recognize
outstanding achievements in chamber communications, marketing and public relations.

Earlier this year our Solomon was appointed to the FACP board
of directors for a term which began this last week. In the past four years the
Apalachicola Bay chamber has won seven FACP Communication awards.

“The Chamber is very happy and proud of John’s hard work and
incredible results,” said Donna Duncan, president of the Apalachicola Bay
chamber’s board of directors. “We look forward to recognizing his dedication
and celebrating the outstanding awards and accomplishments very soon.”
