State business leaders gather in Flint
More than 50 top business executives are in Flint today, talking about finding solutions to the city’s problems.
The Moving Flint Forward Leadership Summit at the Flint Institute of Arts is invitation-only.
Tim Herman is the CEO of the Flint/Genesee County Chamber of Commerce. He says it’s important for business leaders from across the state to feel they can freely share their ideas.
“We think it’s important to have this closed meeting…and be able to be open and honest…and let the participants be open and honest,” says Herman.
Flint’s already struggling economy has been dealt a serious blow by the city’s water crisis.
