Hilton Head-Bluffton Chamber receives national honor

The Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce has received a national Award of Communications Excellence from the American Chamber of Commerce Executives.

The chamber won the award for a website it launched this year that provides instant access to important economic and business metrics for the region, according to a news release. The site also contains hundreds of pages of statistical information.

The 29th annual awards program attracted 142 entries from chambers of all sizes across the United States. A three-judge panel of chamber executives evaluated the entries and selected winners in four categories -- advertising, electronic, publications and campaigns.
