McLean County was one of three finalists in its size category, and beat out Cheyenne, Wyo., and Springfield, Ohio. Chamber officials say the award should generate more national exposure and help attract more companies in the future.
"When they're looking at other communities throughout the nation, how does that help us get a little more play or a little more conversation on their end, when they take a look at what we do have to offer for businesses looking for relocation opportunities,” said Charlie Moore, president of the McLean County Chamber of Commerce.
The McLean County Chamber Of Commerce also won the grand award for communications excellence in advertising and marketing.
