During the virtual meeting, the Flint & Genesee Group also revealed their accomplishments over the challenging past year. During the pandemic, the Chamber saw a a large part of their resources dedicated to small business support.

“It was a defining year marked by three interconnected issues: a global pandemic and ensuing economic downturn; a racial and cultural awakening about the pain caused by a long history of racial injustice and a highly divisive U.S. presidential election,” Herman said. “Amid these major disruptions, our team realized what we’ve built over time – in terms of our culture, leadership, agility, and trust – would play a significant role in our ability to navigate a crisis like no other in modern history.”
