2012 ACE: Best of Show

The Greater Oklahoma City Chamber’s main website, www.okcchamber.com, provides information about the programs and services we provide, as well as information about working and living in the greater Oklahoma City area. In 2010, the site (originally developed in 2001) was in desperate need of an overhaul. It was outdated, and as “the voice of business and the visionary organization in Oklahoma City”, having an outdated website was damaging the Chamber’s credibility. The Chamber redesigned the site, with the goal of offering a more effective tool for our audiences. The fresh, new design, layout and modern features were a hit, and we saw unique visitors up 17.34% and new visits up by 32.6% within the first month alone.

Spotlight on Prince William, A Community Guide & Directory

2012 ACE: Gold

For decades the Prince William chamber has been served by two chambers, each with its own directory.  In July 2010 these entities merged becoming the Prince William Chamber of Commerce.  After an initial transition period, we determined that a single directory was essential to fostering a sense of unity and enhancing visibility for our membership.   Additionally the publication should serve as a revenue source.   We researched several vendors, securing one that guaranteed competitive royalties.  The publication itself reflects positively on our membership and Prince William, while serving as a tangible reminder that we are a unified community.

Bass Master Classic Bid

2012 ACE: Gold

In August of 2011, Tulsa Sports Commission staff identified an opportunity to host the 2013 Bassmaster Classic. The industry standard for bid process includes a basic packet of forms containing details requested by the national governing body. Restrictions dictate that a bid must be provided as a paper copy collateral piece. The objective of the piece was to secure a bid from the B.A.S.S. organization to host the 2013 Bassmaster Classic in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The Tulsa Sports Commission won the bid and will host the Bassmaster Classic Feb. 22-24, 2013, creating nearly $30 million in economic impact.

Strive2Thrive is Albany’s vision to empower families to overcome poverty and become productive and inclusive community members.

Catalyst

2012 ACE: Gold

In 2011, the Baton Rouge Area Chamber (BRAC) launched The Creative Capital Agenda; a five-year strategic plan centered around six core strategies. In order to ensure that the campaign’s investors stay privy to the results accomplished, BRAC publishes a quarterly magazine entitled Catalyst. The magazine provides detailed information on the organization’s recent accomplishments, while also supplying glances into future goals and general regional economic information. Care is taken with the design each quarter to ensure that the publication remains visually interesting while keeping a consistent format. This encourages readers to go through the entire publication and remain informed.

Tulsa's Future Campaign Communications

2012 ACE: Gold

Tulsa’s Future is the Tulsa Metro Chamber’s comprehensive, regional economic development plan with a five-year goal to create high-value jobs and generate capital investment. A campaign was initiated in late 2010 to fund the second five-year phase of the ongoing plan. The objective for communications was to assist the development team in increasing the number of investors and to raise $12.5 million. Communications strategies and vehicles for the campaign included collateral materials, solicitation letters, presentation scripts and materials, and a press conference / annual meeting. The communications plan assisted in surpassing both the financial and investor goals, with 126 investors totaling $16.2 million.

Portland Business Alliance: "Value of Jobs" Campaign

2013 ACE: Grand Award

In 2010, the Portland Business Alliance, Greater Portland’s Chamber of Commerce, released a study that revealed declining income levels in the Portland-metro region relative to the national average. Because Oregon is an income-tax dependent state, this means fewer resources for schools, law enforcement and other public services. As the voice for business in the region, the Alliance developed a data-based education campaign to support its pro-jobs public policy efforts by communicating the connection between private-sector jobs, public services and the region’s quality of life.

Greater Oklahoma City Chamber: OKCnewsroom.com

2013 ACE: Best of Show

On June 6, 2012, Oklahoma City was plunged into the spotlight at an unprecedented rate as the Oklahoma City Thunder defeated the San Antonio Spurs in a 107-99 victory, winning its first-ever Western Conference Championship. In a few days, Oklahoma City would play host to the first two games of the finals. The Greater Oklahoma City Chamber, in conjunction with Ackerman McQueen (a local advertising agency), The Gooden Group (a strategic communications firm) and representatives from the Thunder communications team saw this as a unique opportunity to showcase Oklahoma City and tell the story of its renaissance to the international media.
