50th Anniversary Celebration

The Genesee County Chamber of Commerce is Celebrating 50 Years!


On November 1, 1972 the late William F. Brown addressed the public through his broadcast on WBTA with the following: “A county-wide chamber, a new organization embracing and replacing the present LeRoy and Batavia Chambers, and affording representation to the remainder of Genesee County, would be a major improvement and greater use of resources than Batavia now has…”. Two weeks later, following votes by the board of directors of both the LeRoy and Batavia Chambers, a merger was formed, allowing for the creation of the Genesee County Chamber of Commerce!
