ALEXANDRIA, VA (Aug. 13) — Kris Johnson, Membership Development Director at the Prince William Chamber of Commerce, is the recipient of the American Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE) Membership Development Division’s National Sales Leader Award. The award was sponsored by Save Local Now.
Kris was recognized for ranking #1 in the nation among ACCE member chamber sales professionals in the Chamber’s Dues Category for recruiting more than 290 new members over the last twelve months.
The award was presented during ACCE’s Annual Awards ceremony at the association’s annual convention, July 23-26, in Oklahoma City.
The Sales Contest Awards are based on the total number of individual sales and total dollar amount as submitted to ACCE by the sales professionals on a quarterly basis, in each of four dues income categories. To qualify for the Sales Contest Awards, chamber membership sales professionals must be members of ACCE’s Membership Development Division’s Circle of Champions. In addition, the eligible sales to “new members” must have been made between June 1, 2012 and May 31, 2013.
Rob Clapper, President & CEO of the Prince William Chamber of Commerce noted that this is the second year in a row that Johnson has been the recipient of this award. “Speaking on behalf of the Chamber’s Board of Directors and staff, I would like to say that we are extremely proud of Kris and her accomplishments. To move into a new income category and still produce top sales for the nation — that’s impressive. We are lucky to have someone who not only believes in the work we do as a Chamber, but also cares a great deal about success of our members.”
