CCAA Presents Connie Bainbridge with Chamber Partner Award for 2020
MONTGOMERY, AL – The Chamber of Commerce Association of Alabama (CCAA) presented Connie Bainbridge with the inaugural Chamber Partner Award in recognition of her continued support, leadership, and assistance to local chambers of commerce across Alabama.
The CCAA Chamber Partner Award was established to recognize an individual or organization each year that goes above and beyond to support the mission of CCAA in “building a better Alabama through stronger chambers of commerce.” The Award is presented annually to an individual or organization that is not a direct employee of a local chamber of commerce yet consistently supports local Alabama chambers of commerce and the state association.
The award was presented at the CCAA Summer Conference held in Point Clear, AL.
“Connie is to be commended for receiving the 2020 CCAA Chamber Partner Award,” said Dean Mitchell, Executive Director of the Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce and the 2020 Chairman of the CCAA Board of Directors. “Connie is committed to improving the lives of others through generously giving her time and talents. She strives to enhance the communities and the organizations she is involved in with a positive approach and unwavering support…including CCAA.”
Jeremy L. Arthur, President and CEO of the CCAA, said Bainbridge is a true professional. “Connie’s nomination alone is a true testament that highlights why the panel of judges selected her as this year’s recipient. Her continued commitment to numerous local chambers and to CCAA highlights her belief in the goals and missions of what chambers do everyday in support of our business community. Alabama is a better place due to Connie’s spirit and her commitment of time and the gifts she gives for the benefit of us all.”
Since its beginning in 1937 as the Alabama Association of Commercial Organizations, what is now known as the Chamber of Commerce Association of Alabama has remained dedicated to advancing the goal that chambers of commerce are the premier local business advocate in the State of Alabama. In conjunction with the Business Council of Alabama, a non-partisan organization, the two groups through the BCA/CCAA Partnership, represent the interests and concerns of over 1 million working Alabamians every day.
