Welcome to IT’S ALL ABOUT WHO YOU KNOW, with host, Craig Turner from Momentum – The Business Growth Agency. On our podcast, Craig interviews executives from Chambers of Commerce around the United States and Canada, tapping into their expertise on how to get the most value from your business associations, how their organizations are serving their members and what’s happening in their market for companies looking to grow there.
This episode, Craig welcomes Tiffany Ott, Administrator for the Pennsylvania Association of Chamber Professionals (PACP). But that's not all... Tiffany is also:
Executive Director, Georgia Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (GACCE)
Administrator, Carolinas Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (CACCE)
Executive Director, Louisiana Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (LACCE)
Executive Director, Virginia Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (VACCE)
Join Craig and Tiffany for their conversation about the importance of not only chambers of commerce to their communities - and Tiffany represents more than 700 of them in her various organizations - but about continually educating and inspiring the leaders of those chambers, so they can be at their best. Learn about themes (workforce!) that are prevalent all across Tiffany's network of chambers, as well as how chambers are dealing with post-pandemic realities, taking advantage of opportunities, and relying on each other for good ideas and best practices. With the benefit of being able to see the chamber industry from a very high level, Tiffany shares her insights into the current climate, and the road ahead.
