Chamber of the Year Trophy Tour Information and Guidelines

Help us celebrate this collective national honor! The Chamber is launching a new campaign to take our collective “Chamber of the Year Award” on tour to some of our member’s locations. Our members are key contributors to the North Central Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce. This “trophy tour” is a way to acknowledge our members contributions to our success and share in this prestigious national honor as well as build community spirit.

Here’s how it would work:

1. If you would like to participate, then contact Maureen Babcock on the Chamber team at and schedule a convenient date and time. Someone from the Chamber will bring the Chamber of the Year trophy to your workplace and stay with it during the visit. You will have approximately thirty minutes with the trophy;

2. Snap a photo of the Chamber of the Year trophy at your workplace. It can be a traditional photo of you with the trophy at your business or it can be a fun photo with the trophy incorporated into your day to day activities. We encourage you to be creative and to highlight your business and community;

3. Share the photo on social media using the suggested hashtags of #chamberoftheyear, #trophytour and #northcentralma, and please make sure to tag the Chamber;

4. Enjoy watching the Chamber of the Year trophy journey throughout the region!


Photo Guide: We encourage creativity and showcasing your business with the photo! The Chamber of the Year Trophy can be photographed with products your business manufactures, at a meeting of your staff, at a project site, sitting at the reception desk, or even at an office lunch. Traditional photos are fine too, such as taking a photo of the trophy in front of your company sign or taking a group photo with the trophy. If you don’t have an office, then feel free to take the photo at the Chamber office or out in the community;

Safety: The trophy is made of crystal, so please make sure to be careful when handling the trophy to avoid damage or harm to any individuals. You should treat the trophy like you would any other valuable heirloom. A member of the Chamber staff will accompany the trophy during the visit to assist, and will sanitize the trophy between visits;

Duration: We anticipate that each visit will be about 30 minutes. If you think you will need additional time then please let us know in advance


Any Questions: Please feel free to reach out to Maureen Babcock at or by phone at 978.353.7600 ext. 222 with any questions or if you would like to schedule a visit.
