Clarion Chamber leader Becker honored

From staff reports

Six area chamber of commerce professionals, including Clarion Area Chamber of Business and Industry leader Tracy Becker, received distinguished service awards during the Pennsylvania Association of Chamber Professionals leadership conference.

Becker was recognized for her 35 years of service with the Clarion Chamber.

The conference was held last week in Johnstown, and each year the organization recognizes chamber professionals who have served for any five-year increment in chamber management.

To qualify, candidates must have been in full-time chamber or chamber-sponsored affiliate management for at least five years, must now be serving in chamber management in Pennsylvania, and must have been a Chamber Professionals member for at least three consecutive years.

The organization’s service awards are meant to promote and recognize outstanding chamber service not only to the individuals’ communities but also to their professional association.
