(Warsaw, IN) – The Kosciusko Chamber of Commerce recently received three Innovative
Excellence Awards from the Indiana Chamber Executives Association (ICEA). ICEA annually
recognizes Chambers across the state of Indiana for their accomplishments. The Kosciusko
Chamber was awarded for creating entertaining marketing, specifically their comedic Instagram Reels that have reached nearly 10 million people on social media so far in 2022. Additionally, they received an award for partnering with one of their members, Kensington Digital Media, to host Bizz Buzz, a weekend radio show featuring three Kosciusko County businesses each week. Their third award recognized them for providing the only fingerprinting location in Kosciusko County. In the last year, the Chamber staff has fingerprinted over 3,000 people, helping them gain employment.

At the ICEA annual conference last week, the Kosciusko Chamber of Commerce was also
recognized as a top finalist for the Indiana Chamber of the Year for the second year in a row. The Kosciusko Chamber finished in second place both years.

Chamber President and CEO, Rob Parker said, “The Kosciusko Chamber is blessed to have
such a great team of individuals on its staff. This recognition from ICEA reflects the
professionalism, creativity, and excellence that is delivered by the team every day. I could not be more proud of their dedication to serving our members in such innovative, caring, and dynamic ways.”
