ACG Chapters of the Year Announced

ACG Indiana, ACG Los Angeles and ACG Wisconsin honored

4 April 2014: CHICAGO — The Association for Corporate Growth (ACG), the global organization focused on driving middle-market growth, announced the winners of the annual "Chapter of the Year" honors. Awards are presented in three categories based on a chapter’s membership size. This year’s winners are:

  • ACG Indiana
  • ACG Los Angeles
  • ACG Wisconsin

"These chapters represent the best of the best in the past year," said Pam Hendrickson, COO, The Riverside Company and ACG chairman of the board. "But it’s not just about solid business performance, but also innovation, mentoring and supporting ACG’s mission of Driving Middle-Market Growth®."

ACG Indiana
Celebrating a decade as an ACG chapter, ACG Indiana is a powerhouse in membership growth and retention. This past year, the chapter launched the Capital Markets Showcase to rave reviews and impressive attendance. ACG Indiana continues to be a model for best practices and excels at enhancing member service and benefits.

ACG Los Angeles
One of ACG’s oldest and most successful chapters, ACG Los Angeles is known for its innovative spirit and solid membership growth. ACG Los Angeles also received two grant awards from the ACG Chapter Innovation Fund – for e-troika, a new networking and teleconferencing technology, and Deal Spotlight. In addition, ACG Los Angeles has been a strong supporter of ACG Global’s public policy efforts.

ACG Wisconsin
ACG Wisconsin serves as ACG’s MVP with exceptional performance across the board in all categories. Last year, the chapter introduced its first large-scale conference in a decade, The Growth, Leadership and Human Capital Conference, to a sold-out crowd. ACG Wisconsin membership is also noteworthy for their successful programming and percentage of corporate members.

"Over the years, these awards have fostered some healthy, productive and friendly competition amongst the chapters," said Gary A. LaBranche, FASAE, CAE, president and CEO of ACG. "The resulting inspiration and collaboration keeps raising the bar on member service, networking events and innovation year after year. This spirit drives middle-market growth, both today and well into the future."

The Chapter of the Year awards are based on scoring in three areas: self-assessment, benchmark data and ACG engagement.

  1. The self-assessment allows each chapter to self-score on a range of best practices in the following categories – leadership and governance, financial operations, membership, programs and marketing.

  2. For benchmark data, key chapter performance metrics, such as membership retention and chapter growth are used. 

  3. Chapter engagement and involvement within ACG is also measured via self-reporting and includes participation in monthly conference calls and leadership meetings.

In addition, Christy Dancause, chapter executive, ACG Boston has been selected as the recipient of the ACG President’s Award for Excellence and Achievement by an ACG Chapter Executive. Given annually to a single ACG chapter executive, the award recognizes dedication to ACG over a long period of time coupled with outstanding performance as an association professional. Ms. Dancause joined ACG Boston in 2006 as the event manager, and she advanced into the executive director role in 2009. Her generous support and guidance to other chapter executives, as well her dedication to the profession of association management, sets the standard for the organization.
