Governance

_JKX9738

December 1, 2017:

Today I am honored to take the helm of the Detroit Economic Club and look forward to leading this wonderful organization.

Thank you to DEC Chairman Gerry Anderson, the DEC Board and all 3,800 DEC members for your support of the Club.  The DEC will continue to be a forum where you can hear from worldwide business and political thought leaders, and network with a diverse group of successful professionals.   Together, along with a dedicated staff, we will keep the Club a point of pride for Southeast Michigan for generations to come.

The DEC thrives today because of the efforts of outgoing CEO Beth Chappell.  Please join fellow DEC members at our December 18th Member Reception to thank Beth for her service.

I look forward to seeing you on the 18th or sooner.

Best Regards,

Steve Grigorian
