Milton Keynes Chamber of Commerce has been named as a finalist in the prestigious national Chamber Awards 2015.
The business group is in the running for both the ‘excellence in membership services’ award and ‘chamber of the year’ at this year’s ceremony.
Organised by the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), the event is considered to be one of the UK’s hotly contested business awards that recognises and rewards business success across the UK and the work of local chambers of commerce.
Each year the BCC opens four categories to local chambers.
Paul Griffiths, Chief Executive of Milton Keynes Chamber, said: “This is wonderful news for Milton Keynes Chamber to be shortlisted in these two categories.
“We have a dedicated team of staff here at the Chamber and being shortlisted is a deserved recognition of all the exceptional work each and every member of the team has contributed over the last year.
“To win either the ‘excellence in membership services’ award and ‘chamber of the year’ award would top off everything that we have achieved. We look forward to the awards ceremony next month.”
Milton Keynes Chamber’s work is supported by its associate organisation Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce, with whom they would share the awards should they be given the title.
The winners of the awards will be announced at the BCC Chamber Awards 2015 ceremony on Thursday, November 26 in London.
