The Chamber of Commerce of West Alabama's Director of Membership Engagement, Alicia Gregory, has been recognized by the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE) as a top 40 Under 40 honoree.
ACCE is the professional development and membership association for chambers of commerce throughout the United States and North America. The 40 Under 40 program recognizes the top emerging leaders in the chamber of commerce industry who have demonstrated success in their careers and made significant contributions in the communities they represent.

She played a pivotal role in our innovative COVID-19 response efforts and in positioning the chamber to be named ACCE Chamber of the Year in 2021,” Jim Page, President and CEO of the Chamber, said.
“It’s an honor to be recognized and thought of as an emerging leader in the chamber industry,” Gregory said. “With the countless amount of training opportunities offered by ACCE and the knowledge and collaboration of our own staff, it has made the last five years the best growing opportunity for me, both personally and professionally.”
