HORIZON INITIATIVE: CHAMBERS 2025

How will chambers adapt and evolve to mega trends over the next decade, and how will they ensure that their best days are yet to come?

These are the core questions explored in ACCE’s seminal report - Horizon Initiative: Chambers 2025. Released in April 2015, the Horizon Initiative report is the product of more than a year’s work by an ACCE Board Task Force. It taps the chamber industry’s collective wisdom and draws heavily from social science scholarship and business research. The goal is not to tell chambers what they must do or be a decade from now. Instead, the value of this report is its potential to inspire ideas.

Capturing the industry’s Horizon-inspired ideas and advancing understanding about the eight influences are the goals of this website. We’ve also compiled all the essential documents, links and samples into one resources page. Click, explore and share.
