CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

 

In June 2017, the City of Warren and the Southeast Michigan Chamber of Commerce created the Warren Area Chamber of Commerce and held the kick off event at Andiamos.  One of the main reasons the charter was establisehd was to promote activities in the City of Warren and to create events for the residents of Warren.  The first event was Run Warren which had 150 runners and gave $7,000 back to the community.
