Columbus, OH – The Ohio Chamber’s Chamber Action Alliance (CAA) awarded the Licking County Chamber of Commerce the 2014 Leadership Grassroots Advocacy Award for its commitment to legislative advocacy and leadership in grassroots efforts at the state and local level.

The CAA is the state-wide grassroots advocacy coalition of Ohio chambers of commerce coordinated by the Ohio Chamber. The CAA determines state-wide policy issues facing the business community, educates and empowers pro-businesses advocates to take action, and champions a business-friendly climate throughout the state of Ohio. Every year the CAA selects one local chamber that exemplifies the purpose of the CAA and awards the Leadership in Grassroots Advocacy Award to recognize its hard work and service to the local and statewide communities.

“The Licking County Chamber under the leadership of President/CEO Cheri Hottinger plays a pivotal role in business community in Licking County,” said Katie Brown, Grassroots Communications Manager for the Ohio Chamber. “The chamber has passionately advocated throughout the year on business issues at state and local levels, hosted events to education its members and the public, regularly engaged with state and local officials, and took an active role in its community. The chamber is a true asset to its community and the CAA is lucky to have it as an active member.”

Senator Tim Schaffer and Representative Jay Hottinger presented the chamber with commendations to honor the Licking County Chamber for winning the Leadership in Grassroots Advocacy Award.

Founded in 1893, the Ohio Chamber of Commerce is Ohio’s largest statewide business advocacy group. The Ohio Chamber works to promote and protect the interests of its members – large and small – while building a more favorable business climate in Ohio.
