Congratulations to the twenty chamber executives that graduated from ACCE’s Fellowship for Education Attainment, a professional academy launched by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE) in 2014. The inaugural cohort of fellows were chosen to participate in the immersive year-long fellowship based on their demonstrated commitment and passion for improving the birth-to-career education pipeline in their communities.
Last year, ACCE embraced the Lumina Foundation's Goal 2025, a national effort to increase the percentage of Americans with high-quality degrees and credentials to 60 percent by the year 2025. Working in partnership with Lumina, ACCE’s Education Attainment Division launched the awards program to accelerate chambers’ education attainment and workforce development work by providing funding, technical and planning assistance, and access to a powerful network of national thought-leadership organizations.
