Greater Federal Way Chamber of Commerce CEO Rebecca Martin has been appointed by the American Chamber of Commerce Executives to serve on the Certified Chamber Executive (CCE) Commission for a three-year term beginning in July.

The CCE program is the only national designation for Chamber professionals and is designed to assess an executive’s knowledge of the four core chamber leadership areas: Management, Planning and Development, Membership and Communication and Operations.

“There is nothing quite as exciting as working with strategic business leaders energized by a well-run Chamber,” Martin said in a media release.

“I know from experience how impactful the CCE designation can be for an organization and am so pleased to be participating with my industry colleagues on this national program,” she said in the release.

Martin is among the 6 percent of Chamber executives in the country with the designation and the only CCE-certified executive leading a chamber of commerce in the state of Washington.

Martin also earned the Institutional Organizational Management certification from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
