2015 Conference


Professional development is the key to success for any chamber professional. Success in today’s increasingly competitive marketplace and challenging economic times requires chamber professionals to stay up-to-date on management topics and chamber practices.

As a response to this demand, the University of Oklahoma offers the opportunity for career-minded professionals to advance in knowledge and respect by earning our Certificate of Achievement in Advanced Chamber Management by completing Advanced Chamber Management sessions I, II, and III.  Through a unique partnership with the state chambers of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana, we can provide you with the training and resources you need to develop your chamber. Join us this year!

The Center for Chamber of Commerce Excellence can provide the training, resources and network you need to develop your chamber career. Through a unique partnership with The University of Oklahoma and multiple regionally located state and local chambers, CCCE has been established to provide necessary skills and training to enhance your chamber’s
value to your business community. Guided by a Board of Regents of seasoned Chamber executives from a four-state area of Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas, you’re sure to find the resources, insights and developments you need to expand your career.

Please make plans to join us this year for the 16th annual Conference,
