Indianapolis, IN – The Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce finished this week’s Indiana Chamber Executives Association Conference (ICEA) as the winner of two statewide awards and a finalist for Chamber of the Year.

The organization highlighted increased member access, news and blogging and additional information points available on the site. Another exciting point was the site was overseen and designed by Chamber member RED66 Marketing.

“The team at the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce does a great job, there’s no doubt about it, so these two awards are well deserved,” says Chamber Board of Directors Chair Keith Carter. “I know how hard they worked on the new web site and how valuable RED66 was in the process. Terre Haute Young Leaders has always been a great asset to the community and will continue to grow the next generation of leaders. Congratulations to all involved, it’s a great achievement.”
