Who We Are

Approximately ten years ago, the Gratiot Avenue Business Association was formed working closely with the Macomb First Business Alliance. In 2015, they combined and became the Gratiot Avenue Chamber of Commerce Macomb (GACCM) , serving all 9 communities along the Gratiot corridor: Eastpointe, Roseville, Clinton Township, Mount Clemens, Chesterfield, Lennox, Richmond, the Village of New Haven and Macomb Township representing the interests of approximately 350,000 residents.

 

With a record of success along the Gratiot corridor the Gratiot Chamber was asked to assist in the formation of other Chambers. In early 2017, the Southeast Michigan Chamber of Commerce was formed with its affiliated chambers, the Warren Center Line Chamber of Commerce, and flagship chamber, the Gratiot Avenue Chamber of Commerce.  With the coalescing of the various Chambers under this banner the interests of 11 communities and 500,000 residents are represented. 

 

These Chambers offer the traditional programs and opportunities generally associated with chambers of commerce: networking, educational workshops and forums, business to business marketing opportunities, discounted services and products, health insurance and other health and health related products.

TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR MEMBERS

“I have been a member of the Southeast Michigan Chamber of Commerce for 5 years, and I must say that it has been an incredibly rewarding experience. The SMCC's commitment to connecting businesses with other businesses and businesses with local government is truly impressive. Their dedication to fostering strong relationships between local businesses and government entities has resulted in a tangible positive impact on our community.

 

Through their networking events, informative seminars, and advocacy efforts, I've had the opportunity to engage with fellow business owners, local officials, and professionals who share a common goal of driving economic growth and community development. It's evident that the SMCC's work is not just about connecting businesses for the sake of networking, but about fostering meaningful collaborations that have a lasting, positive influence on our local area."
