State of Illinois Recognizes Chambers and Their Contribution to Illinois Commerce

 

September 15, 2009 , Mt. Prospect, Ill-- Illinois Governor Pat Quinn has proclaimed September 14 through September 18, 2009 as Chamber of Commerce Week throughout Illinois.

 

The Mount Prospect Chamber has joined the Illinois Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (IACCE) and the Illinois Chamber of Commerce in celebrating this special recognition of the contributions chambers of commerce make to Illinois civic and economic life.

 

In his Proclamation, the Governor declared, “Chambers of Commerce have contributed to the civic and economic life in Illinois for 171 years, since the Galena Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1838.  Chambers of commerce encourage the growth of existing industries, services, and commercial firms and encourage new businesses and individuals to locate in Illinois.”

 

IACCE President, Liz Kerns, said, “We are extraordinarily proud of the accomplishments of each chamber across our great state.  Each chamber should take this week to celebrate these accomplishments in their individual communities as well as all chambers across the state and country.  The chamber industry is part of the back bone of each community in which they serve.”

 

The Mount Prospect Chamber has a special display for the entire month at the Mount Prospect Public Library in meeting room A, the large room. The display features awards that the Chamber has received over the past few years, as well as some of the publications, and promotional materials the chamber uses to support businesses. The Chamber also has an After Hours on Tuesday September 15th at Capannari Ice Cream celebrating Chamber Week.

 

The Mount Prospect Chamber of Commerce’s mission is to promote, support and enrich the local business community through the delivery of quality services, effective communication and through the establishment of partnerships with individuals, community organizations, fellow chamber members and governmental bodies.
