The Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce won a Communications Excellence Best in Show Award by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE).

The chamber was recognized for its "Faces of Small Business" video series, which showcases the stories and people behind local establishments. 

Each minute-long video tells the story behind why an owner launched a business, what it means to them, what they do and why it matters. The documentary-style videos are then featured on the chamber’s social media, email newsletter and website.

Over the past two years, over 50 businesses - from restaurants to boutiques to law firms and healthcare - have been featured. 

"Every business has a story to tell. We’re honored and proud to share them," said Bill Miles, President & CEO of the Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce. 

ACCE’s Awards for Communications Excellence program is designed to showcase the top communications and marketing work of chambers of commerce. 

A panel of communications and marketing professionals from 10 U.S.-based chambers of commerce evaluated entries submitted for this year’s competition.
