Genesee Regional Chamber membership surpasses 1,000 and growing

GENESEE COUNTY — For the third consecutive year, the Genesee Regional Chamber of Commerce has seen a significant uptick in its membership, closing 2012 with 1,009 members.

A roster this size makes the Genesee Regional Chamber one of the largest and most active business organizations in the state.

“The Genesee Regional Chamber of Commerce is among the top 10 largest chambers in the state measured by revenue and number of members,” said Bob Thomas, Senior Director of Operations, Michigan Chamber Foundation.

As the principal economic development organization serving Flint and Genesee County, the Regional Chamber collaborates with its members and other public and private partners to grow the number of jobs and investment in our community. With the support of a recovering economy and solid value proposition, the organization increased its membership by 12 percent over 2011.

According to Tim Herman, CEO of the Genesee Regional Chamber of Commerce three years of positive growth is a great accomplishment.

“Given the economic and fiscal challenges that businesses have faced over the past four years, many chambers are losing members versus gaining new members,” said Herman. “Due to our portfolio of services, our relationships and our commitment to understanding the business needs of our members, we’ve managed to achieve yearover year increases in membership.”

With more than 1,000 members, the Genesee Regional Chamber is among the most influential in the state.

According to the Michigan Chamber of Commerce there are more than 300 chambers of commerce in Michigan. — G.G.
