The Georgia Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (GACCE) has named Carroll County Chamber President/CEO Daniel Jackson as a Georgia Certified Chamber Executive. This designation exemplifies excellence and professionalism of Georgia’s Chamber executives based on experience, service to GACCE, training/continuing education and personal achievement.
Jackson joins a group of 24 current and former chamber executives who have achieved this honor. The designation was created to strengthen career development and measure individual progress. Several of Jackson’s GACCE colleagues from across the region and the state supported his nomination.
“It takes a special kind of individual to do a credible job as a chamber executive and in my experience, Daniel never fails to give his all in every situation,” said Candace Boothby, President/CEO of the Newnan-Coweta Chamber. “His experience and judgment are first rate and Daniel is one of our State’s most talented, respected, and effective chamber leaders.”
Another Chamber next-door neighbor, Douglas County Chamber President/CEO Kali Boatright, is appreciative of Jackson’s personal assistance to her when she began her position as a chamber CEO.
“When I took this job 10 years ago, Daniel shared all of his resources to help me learn my role. I have personally gained respect for him because he is a man of integrity, sharing and modeling,” Boatright said. “He is respected by so many people in his own community, and in my community next door, and it is well-deserved.”
Bill Mitchell, President of the Toombs-Montgomery Chamber in Vidalia, noted that Jackson has served on the GACCE board of directors for over four years and is active in numerous committees. He is currently the First Vice Chair/Secretary for the organizations’ 2014-15 executive committee.
“Daniel is hard working and committed to making a difference in his community and Georgia. “ Mitchell said. “His good judgment and mature outlook ensure a practical approach to solving local and state chamber challenges.”
Jackson began his career in economic development in 2001 when he joined the Carroll Tomorrow team, and he became president of the Carroll County Chamber in 2004. His community involvement includes stints as president of the Carrollton Lions Club, University of West Georgia Athletic Booster Club, and Richards College of Business Board of Advisors; chairmanship of several boards of directors including Tanner Medical Center, West Georgia Technical College, Carroll County Schools College and Career Academy; and board member of Great Promise Partners, Carrollton High School STEM Advisory Board, Georgia Economic Developers Association.
