Hall chamber's Dunlap receives top honor from state association

By AccessWDUN Staff

Kit Dunlap, President & CEO of the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce, Thursday was presented with the Georgia Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives top award – the GACCE Legacy Award. 

The announcement was made at the 2018 GACCE Executive Leadership Conference at Jeykll Island.

For more than 20 years, the GACCE has presented the Legacy Award.  The association’s most prestigious award, it recognizes long-term executives who have excelled over a period of years in leading and innovatively building their chamber.  The award is based on the demonstration of excellence in areas of chamber leadership, organizational management, service to the profession, community reputation/involvement, and personal attributes.

Dunlap has served as President & CEO of the Greater Hall Chamber for 20 years. 

She was nominated for the award by the Chamber’s Immediate Past Chairman of the Board, Perry Barnett, CPA with Rushton Accounting & Business Advisors. 

“Kit Dunlap has created an economic development team that is not only well connected in Georgia, but is well connected around the world,” Barnett said.  “In the last 10 years, the Chamber’s economic development program has worked to encourage 235 new and expanded business announcements creating 9,300 new jobs, retaining 3,000 existing jobs, and $1.75 billion in new capital investment.  It is not very often that we encounter a person with ambition to serve others, as well as compassion to leave each conversation with us as a better friend than before. We are fortunate to have these attributes and more in our Chamber President & CEO.”
