Help Bring Business and More Visitors to the Flint & Genesee Region
Become a Community Champion by partnering with the Flint & Genesee Convention & Visitors Bureau. The Community Champion program is designed to increase the economic impact of tourism and generate more local overnight hotel stays.
Overnight visitors to the county boost the local economy. According to Tim Herman, CEO of the Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce, the Community Champion program has proven to have a positive economic impact on the area already.
“David White, Community Champion for 2012, brought $13,000 of revenue to Flint and Genesee County last year by inviting the Society of Automotive Historians to hold their annual meeting in the county,” said Herman.
White invited the Society of Automotive Historians, an international organization, and the 300-member Michigan Historic Preservation Network’s state-wide convention to Genesee County. Imagine the economic impact it would have if White’s efforts were multiplied hundreds of times across the county by other Community Champions.
