Lifetime Sales Achievement, Sales Contest recognize chamber of commerce sales professionals

Alexandria, Va. (July 18, 2018) — ACCE, the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives, has awarded Kathy Blank of the McKinney Chamber of Commerce with its Lifetime Sales Achievement - Gold (1,000 transactions or $500,000 in sales) and Circle of Champions Sales Contest awards for number of new personal sales.  

Blank placed second in the $500,000 to $2 million dues income category for number of new personal sales and fourth in the dollar value of new personal sales. Three categories—over $2 million, $500,000 to $2 million and under $500,000—correlate to different sizes of chambers of commerce, based on annual revenue from membership dues.

“Being recognized among the incredible membership professionals throughout the country is truly an honor,” shared Blank. “The significant growth of our membership in the McKinney Chamber is truly a testimony to the level of engagement our business members bring to our rapidly growing community and the value they see in our organization.”

Blank has served as Director of Membership since July 2016 and was promoted to Vice President in 2018 and played a key role in growing the Major Investor Program of the Chamber as well as membership to over 1350. She is well known in the North Texas business and civic community as a seasoned business professional and former nonprofit executive.  Blank values and supports strong strategic partnerships and works tirelessly as a connector and advocate for both business and nonprofit organizations. Her expertise has led her to work closely with businesses of all sizes, from large global corporations to the vibrant small business community that are all essential to the health and vitality of our thriving North Texas business community.

Circle of Champions Sales Contest and Lifetime Achievement awards were presented during the 2018 ACCE Annual Convention in Des Moines, Iowa July 18. To be considered for an award, sales professionals must submit quarterly sales figures to ACCE.
