Insight On Business the News Hour

Meet Sheree Anne Kelly - President/CEO of the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives

We had the opportunity to broadcast from and record a number of interviews at the recent convention and education event of the Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (ACCE). During that time we were surprised at how many people in cities and villages across the United States are working on issues like wage growth, affordable housing, skills training, employment opportunities and issues of equality. We asked the new President/CEO of ACCE, Sheree Anne Kelly about that and more in this conversation. And...if it sounds like we're "gushing" a bit...yep.

The Los Angeles Area Chamber - Creating Hope for Hundreds

When I saw that Gerry Feeney was with the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce we didn't know what to expect. Were we going to talk about Hollywood or bold new social and economic programs? It turned out it was the latter. Gerry has quite a story about how the Chamber and the County are working at finding work for hundreds which, in turn, gets them out of a life of crime and into the workforce. It turns out that this approach is not only cheaper than jail but also provides each person with hope. At the end of our conversation you'll learn what his motivation has been. From our time together at the Association of Chamber of Commerece Executives (ACCE) meet Gerry Feeney the Director of Smart Justice; it's a great story about creating hope for hundreds...
