CCAA is proud to partner with AMEA for community development across Alabama
Through a partnership between the Alabama Municipal Electric Authority (AMEA) and the Chamber of Commerce Association of Alabama (CCAA), AMEA continues to be a leader in community development across Alabama.
“I am honored to have the support of AMEA,” said Jeremy L. Arthur, president and CEO, CCAA. “Their team of economic and community development professionals have a commitment to enhancing the quality of life for everyone in Alabama. They reach not only the communities they serve, but countless others through their support programs.”
“AMEA’s 11 Member cities actively support economic and community development throughout their communities,” said Fred D. Clark, Jr., president and CEO, AMEA “Our Member cities support efforts to improve the quality of life and promote vibrant, active, economically stable communities. Public power is good for business. AMEA is proud to partner with CCAA and with other state and community organizations that wish to achieve the same goals.”
“There is no better example of the success of public power than AMEA,” said Lisa Miller, manager of communications and marketing, AMEA. “This success translates into community success. The local chambers of commerce are a key source for leadership, initiative and direction. Chambers of commerce work to strengthen businesses and build communities.”
AMEA partners with 11 chambers of commerce throughout its service territory, including the Alexander City Chamber of Commerce; the Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce; the Eastern Shore Chamber of Commerce; the South Baldwin Chamber of Commerce; the Greater Valley Area Chamber of Commerce; the Crenshaw County Chamber of Commerce; the Opelika Chamber of Commerce; Calhoun County Chamber of Commerce; the Sylacauga Area Chamber of Commerce; the Tuskegee Area Chamber of Commerce; and the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce.
“AMEA values the partnerships it has with chambers of commerce throughout its service territory,” Mrs. Miller added. “From Piedmont to Alexander City to Dothan to Fairhope, the 11 chambers of commerce within AMEA’s service territory are voluntary organizations of business and professional people working together to build a healthy economy and to improve the community’s quality of life. The local chamber of commerce has the responsibility to promote the economic well-being and to advocate for a positive business environment, and we are happy to partner with them, as well as CCAA, to further their efforts.”
