The Jenks Chamber of Commerce has been named a “Certified Chamber” by the Oklahoma Chamber of Commerce Executives, a statewide organization dedicated to professional development for chamber professionals. The Jenks Chamber was part of the first ever group of chambers to be recognized in the state.

“This certification shows that our board of directors and our staff are all dedicated to organizational excellence,” Chamber President Josh Driskell said. “This certification is a message to the Jenks business community that we operate according to the highest of standards and are dedicated to serve Jenks businesses.”

According to the OCCE website, “certification demonstrates the organization’s commitment to industry standards and best practices as established by the state’s only professional development organization for chambers of commerce.”

The certification process includes a panel reviewing chamber operations and practices in the areas of organizational excellence, mission focus, professional administration, financial management, communications and advocacy.
