'Small Business Advocate' Blasingame Honored
August 12, 2009 at 11:17 AM (PT)
The AMERICAN CHAMBER OF COMMERCE EXECUTIVES (ACCE) has presented small business expert JIM BLASINGAME, host of the syndicated "SMALL BUSINESS ADVOCATE" show, with its "Champion of the Chamber Movement" award. The award, not an annual honor, has only been bestowed once before and recognizes "years of tireless support of individual chambers and the ACCE."
"We have been very selective in presenting the 'Champion' award over the years," said ACCE President MICK FLEMING. "JIM BLASINGAME deserves this recognition not only because he uses his media platform to advance the importance of local chambers, but also because of his direct support to local chambers and, of course, for his many years as a valuable partner in our work at the ACCE."
"As a member of my own chamber of commerce since 1977," said BLASINGAME, "it is a great honor to be recognized by the community of chamber professionals for whom I hold the highest regard. The leaders at the ACCE and the chamber executives they serve are among the most dedicated small business champions on the planet, which makes supporting them an important part of my work and that of my organization."
BLASINGAME's show is syndicated through TALK SHOWS USA; reach SKIP JOECKEL at (719) 579-6676.
