Chamber’s annual meeting to focus on the nexus between talent and economic growth

The Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce on March 11 will hold its 2020 Annual Meeting at the Holiday Inn Flint-Grand Blanc Area, 5353 Gateway Centre. This year’s theme is “Investing in Talent for Economic Growth.” The Chamber will provide an update on the progress achieved during the second year of its three-year strategic plan and a look at what’s ahead for 2020.

Domino’s Pizza Chairman David A. Brandon will be the keynote speaker.

Keynote speaker David A. Brandon will speak about his perspective on the “talent gap” and what it means for communities like Flint & Genesee. Brandon, who is currently board chairman for Domino’s Pizza, will also share lessons learned from the high-profile positions he has held throughout his admired career. His experience includes serving as chairman and chief executive officer of Valassis, Inc., an international marketing services and sales promotion company; Domino’s; and Toys ‘R’ Us.

“Dave Brandon has acquired a wealth of knowledge over the course of his long and accomplished career, both as a corporate leader and board member for several corporations in different industries,” said Chamber CEO Tim Herman. “With the focus on talent retention and attraction for this year’s Annual Meeting, he is exceptionally well-positioned to provide the kind of insight and experience that would be beneficial for our business and community leaders.”
