Seeing Stars

I am thrilled to announce that the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce has once again received a Five-Star accreditation from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The NACC was awarded this designation due to our sound policies, effective organizational procedures, and positive impact on our community. This 5-star designation is a true feat as less than 3% of Chambers in the United States can achieve this status. The NACC has reached a Five-Star Accreditation for four consecutive cycles. 

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Accreditation Program facilitates continuing excellence in the chamber industry and fosters a pro-business environment across America. To receive Accreditation, a chamber must meet minimum standards in its operations and programs, including areas of governance, government affairs, communications, and technology.  

With approximately 7,000 chambers in the United States, Accreditation with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is a prestigious honor that distinguishes the high quality, expertise, and strong leadership displayed by Accredited state and local chambers of commerce.  We are one of only seven Accredited chambers in Illinois.

By earning Accreditation from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, a chamber shows its dedication to: 

  • Reviewing, improving, and promoting strong business practices 
  • Recognizing leadership and outstanding contributions to the community 
  • Supporting the principles of free enterprise and promoting pro-growth policies at federal, state, and local levels 
  • Establishing best practices and staying in-step with industry changes 

This is an enormous achievement and I am incredibly proud of our NACC Staff team, as well as our Members for setting the NACC up for success. 

See what being Five-Star Accredited truly means and join us at our next two Signature events as we continue to celebrate this accomplishment. 

State of the City Address 

The State of the City Address presented by the current Mayor of Naperville serves as an inspiring recap of the year’s events. The discussion highlights the monumental progression of the area’s quality of life. Additionally, the address also turns an eye towards the future, as we learn all the programs and initiatives scheduled for the upcoming year. 

The Gala: It’s Magic 

Guests will be entertained and awestruck throughout the evening while mingling and playing casino games. 

This cocktail reception will play host to gourmet food stations and live entertainment. 

I look forward to seeing you at these events and thank you for your membership and support.  

Business Forward,
