Jay Chesshir Named Chair of National Association Board


Jay Chesshir, president and CEO of the Little Rock Regional Chamber, was elected 2016-17 chairman of the board of the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives during the organization’s annual convention in Savannah, Georgia, on Aug. 9.

ACCE is a professional development organization serving leaders of regional and statewide chambers of commerce and economic development organizations across North America. Attendance at the 102nd annual convention exceeded 1,200 members.

“For years, Jay Chesshir has been a leader across this organization,” said Joe Roman, CEO of the Greater Cleveland Partnership and ACCE’s immediate past chair. “From reimagining member peer groups, to marshalling financial resources to directing the Economic Development Division, Jay’s fingerprints are all over our most important initiatives.”

Chesshir will serve a one-year term and oversee activities of a 70-member board of directors and guide the work of the organization’s 26 staff.

“I’m honored to serve an organization that has meant so much to me throughout my career,” Chesshir said in a news release. “It’s a joy for any volunteer leader to take the reins of an organization in such good shape — both financially and in fulfilling its mission.”
