One Southern Indiana has been named the 2020 Indiana Chamber of the Year by the Indiana Chamber Executives Association.
The award recognizes the work done by chambers of commerce, with this year’s application process focusing on four core areas: leadership and governance, finance, advocacy and programming. Finalists were reviewed by a panel of professionals from Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky and Oklahoma.
“One Southern Indiana continues to perform at an exceptional level, even in the midst of 2020 national challenges,” said ICEA President Shelli Williams. “The 2020 ICEA Chamber of the Year continues to be bold in their leadership through a powerful strategic plan resulting in outstanding successes for the communities that they serve.”
1si President and CEO Wendy Dant Chesser said, “I have never been prouder of our team. Being recognized by ICEA as the Chamber of the Year is a great honor which is entirely due to the professionalism, dedication and enthusiasm of the entire staff. Appreciation for their hard work, especially during the COVID-19 crisis, is well deserved and I want to thank them for all they do.”
1si also received two 2020 Communication Excellence Awards for their 2019 annual meeting “Mission SoIN Possible” marketing campaign and its 2020 Business Resource Guide.
