Taylor Belcher and Thrive 2055 Receive National Recognition


Our own Taylor Belcher won two awards from the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE): The Lifetime Sales Achievement Award and the National Sales Contest Award.

The Lifetime Sales Achievement Award recognized Belcher for reaching the bronze level (more than 500 transactions) in new member sales.

The National Sales Contest Award recognized Belcher as third in the nation for number of new member sales.


Thrive 2055, a collaborative regional initiative hosted by the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce, was a finalist for the Regional Innovation Award presented by ACCE.

Entries from Mason City Chamber of Commerce in Iowa, Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce in New York and the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce were also finalists.

The award recognizes organizations committed to building vibrant communities through groundbreaking collaboration and program development, specifically targeting initiatives that boost economic competitiveness by investing in health and wellness. 

Thrive 2055 focuses on proactive engagement of the tristate, 16-county region around Chattanooga to make the most of economic opportunities while preserving what is most cherished about the communities. Find more information about Thrive 2055 here
