        Michigan;
Whereas, in 1925, the Safety Council of the Detroit Board of Commerce helped

Whereas, in 1945, the Detroit Board of Commerce promoted the extension of 
        Victory Loans to veterans returning from service in the United States

        the veterans' wartime service, and raised more than half of the total 
        amount contributed in Wayne County, Michigan;
Whereas, in 1969, the Detroit Board of Commerce, then known as the Greater 
        Detroit Chamber of Commerce, was instrumental in the establishment of a

        resulted in the creation of the Southeast Metropolitan Transportation 
        Authority, now known as SMART;
Whereas the Detroit Board of Commerce has been known by several names during its 
        century of existence, eventually becoming known as the Detroit Regional

        make an initial investment in the Detroit Regional Chamber to help

Whereas the Detroit Regional Chamber has supported the concept of regionalism in 
        southeast Michigan, representing the concerns of businesses and the 
        region as a whole;
Whereas the mission of the Detroit Regional Chamber is to help power the economy 
        of southeastern Michigan;

        concerns on behalf of its members at the local, regional, State, and
