Only 76 chambers in the U.S. have five stars, the highest level possible. There are 6,936 chambers of commerce in the nation.

“This ranking validates that our chamber is indeed very special and one of the top in the United States,” chamber chair Jacki Lowe said Thursday in a statement.

The areas reviewed in the ranking process include technology, governance, finance, human resources, governmental affairs, program development, communications and facilities.

The Columbus chamber, founded in 1845, has a membership representing more than 1,200 businesses.
