The Flint & Genesee Chamber has established committees in order to help improve our community. Involvement in these organizations is a great way to network while sharing your talents and expertise.
The liaison between the African American business community and the Chamber
The African American Advisory Committee (AAAC) serves as the liaison between the region’s growing African American business community and the Flint & Genesee Chamber. AAAC members partner with the Chamber to support the advancement and development of African American businesses and professionals. Collectively, we are committed to identifying vital resources for business owners, supporting economic development, and fostering strong community partnerships.
The goal of the AAAC is to collaborate and support the Chamber with ideas and initiatives that foster the development and growth of underrepresented business enterprises such as African American-owned businesses.

A group of leaders from Genesee County businesses and agencies working together to establish a single source of information and support focused on people with disabilities as employees.
The goal of this committee is to serve businesses and residents of Genesee County as a primary resource of information pertaining to the employment, training or accommodations for people with disabilities. We confidentially address the needs and concerns of business owners so that a diverse, inclusive workforce will grow while providing resources for accessible products, services, and benefits.
