BUILDING COMMUNITIES.

BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS.

BUILDING YOUR BUSINESS.

The Southeast Michigan Chamber of Commerce provides several unique ways to build strong business relationships.  Both of our Chamber affiliates, the Gratiot Avenue Chamber of Commerce and the Warren Area Chamber of Commerce not only create a premium networking opportunity through monthly luncheons, but we also assist our members in building relationships with local community elected leadership while also discussing important business issues and opportunities. 

 

Our Chamber Connect Program offers consulting and marketing assistance specific to your goals where we set and attend appointments on your behalf with the businesses and organizations who can best meet your needs, many of which we have longstanding relationships with.

 

While assisting in helping you build your business through member connections, we are very proud to have developed the Warren Community Foundation and the North Gratiot Cruise Foundation which both have non-profit  501 C(3) status.  This provides opportunities for you to give back directly to local organizations and nonprofits who work in service of the greatest needs of the people in Macomb County.

 

We have donated thousands to multiple organizations in the past.  Some of these included Macomb Health and Fitness Foundation, Macomb County Rotating Emergency Shelter Team (MCREST), Vets Returning Home, Warren Animal Welfare Commission, Macomb County Special Olympics, Warren Civic Center South - Maybelle Burnette Library, amongst many others.

MONTHLY LUNCHEONS

Southeast Michigan Chamber of Commerce network affiliates, Warren Area Chamber of Commerce (WACC) and Gratiot Avenue Chamber of Commerce (GACC) meet monthly for lunch on a rotation basis the fourth Thursday of each month, September through June.

The format for the monthly luncheons is not only to create a premium networking opportunity, but also to assist our members in building relationships with our local community elected leadership. Our monthly speakers are generally prominent elected officials as well as other speakers discussing important business ideas and opportunities.

Most months prior to the luncheon meeting, there are workshops, seminars and informational forums on timely business issues and opportunities.
