Chattanooga Chamber Of Commerce Honors Downtown And North Hamilton Councils, Amy Allara Kinworthy

Wednesday, August 23, 2017

Two of the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce's 12 area Councils and several Chamber ambassadors received recognition at the annual meeting on Wednesday. 

The Chamber named its Downtown Council the Council of the Year for bridging gaps between business and education in its footprint. 

“We had an outstanding board of well-rounded individuals and great organizations from all around Chattanooga,” said Joey Greer, past president of the Downtown Council. “We did a debate for the mayors’ race and were able to donate funds back to education. Our board deserves this; it’s awesome.” 

The North Hamilton County Council received the Membership Growth Award for recruiting 14 new Chamber members in 2016-17. 

The Chamber honored Amy Allara Kinworthy, Chattanooga Zoo, as Ambassador of the Year. 

“I love going to ribbon cuttings and helping businesses and people get connected because that’s what Chattanooga is all about,” Ms. Kinworthy said. 

“While our Annual Meeting always represents a chance to celebrate our members, this year was especially meaningful as we recognize our volunteers’ contribution to being named 2017 ACCE Chamber of the Year,” said Sandra Brewer, vice president of Member-Investor Services. “Immediately after winning Chamber of the Year, senior Chamber staff made plans to visit all 12 Councils to share the award.”
