The Detroit Regional Chamber is a well connected and influential force powering the economy for Southeast Michigan. With over 20,000 members and affiliates that employ over three-quarters of a million workers, the Chamber is one of the largest chambers of commerce in the country. Chamber activities and initiatives are centered on four strategic pillars: economic development, regional collaboration, education reform and member value. These pillars are at the core of everything we do within three key areas:
- From startups to Fortune 50 corporations, the Chamber is a powerful resource for the businesses that fuel the region’s continued economic growth. The Chamber serves as the voice of the Southeast Michigan business community and works to bolster the business environment in the region. The Chamber connects Michigan’s business community and helps members grow businesses through best-practice sharing, networking and advocacy.
- Through collaboration with other businesses and organizations, the Chamber champions specific programs and initiatives that build a better economic climate and stronger network for its members – including efforts focused on education, economic development and workforce preparedness.
- The Chamber convenes key stakeholders – including prominent elected officials, change makers and experts – to create a platform for problem solving and tackle the critical issues facing the region. The Chamber also aligns available resources in order to facilitate workable solutions to benefit its members and improve the business climate to move the economic needle.
