Detroit Chinese Business Association Marks 20 Years


The Detroit Chinese Business Association, a non-profit organization that fosters relationships between Chinese and American businesses, will mark its 20th anniversary by hosting a conference on Sept. 21 at the Marriott in Troy, and a golf outing on Sept. 22 at the Indianwood Golf Club in Lake Orion. 

“This anniversary is a tremendous milestone in our organization’s history. DCBA has consistently played a critical role in building mutually beneficial relationships between Chinese and metro Detroit businesses and government officials,” says Jerry Xu, president of the association. 

 Tony Vernaci, vice president for global business development for Michigan Economic Development Corp., will be presenting at the conference, which begins at 2 p.m., and keynote speakers include Jason Luo, president and CEO of Key Safety Systems and chairman of the association's advisory board; Thilo Hanemann, research director of The Rhodium Group; and R.J. King, editor of DBusiness magazine. Brian Connors, China business development manager for Michigan Economic Development Corporation, will co-host a panel discussion. 

L. Brooks Patterson, Oakland County executive, will give a keynote speech at the golf outing, which begins at 8:30 a.m. The event includes a round of golf, breakfast, lunch on the course, and a cocktail reception. Additionally, Somerset Collection will host a fashion show at the event, and hand out gift bags to attendees. The event will close with an evening dinner banquet.

Founded in 1995, the Detroit Chinese Business Association has built a network of more than 3,000 individual and corporate members.
