Chamber Manager Tells Problems, Tasks of Group


Ition William J. Bott, manager of the
Ann Arbor Chamber of Com-
merce, describes the work of his
the University organization as "a lot of business
vision and one that is nobody's business."

greater emphasis is placed on the
improving of the community.
Each local chapter of the
Chamber of Commerce is entirely
self-governing with no direct ties
with other Chambers except
through membership in the na-
tional organization. For this
reason they differ greatly in form
and in general aims. In Ann Ar-
bor, the main interest is in pro-
moting the planned economic
growth of the community.
Piece-Meal Projects Dangerous
According to Bott, there is as
much danger in unplanned piece-
meal projects as there is in no
growth at all. The need for proper
industrial growth, "seems to be
recognized by an increasing num-
ber of people."
This problem Bott considers to
be the most important one the
Chamber of Commerce is working
on. Last July, after working for
three years, it was finally able to
appoint an Economic Develop-
ment Committee to study thecon-
ditions in Ann Arbor, and try to
develop some sort of solutions.
Bott said he feels that the Uni-
versity of Michigan will be a big
asset in the struggle for new in-
dustry. He believes the reputa-
tion of the University of Michi-
gan in engineering and industrial
research will induce industrial re-
search facilities to build in Ann
Manager Most Important
As in many volunteer organiza-
tions with a small paid staff, the
manager is the most important
single man in the local Chamber
of Commerce.
A typical manager is college

educated and has probably taken
special courses in Chamber of
Commerce management. A furth-
er educationaladevelopment has
been a National Institute put on
annually by Michigan StateuUni-
versity. These courses are planned
to keep the local manager abreast
with new ideas and developments
in the local Chamber of Com-
merce field.
According to Bott, a manager
must be a "jack of all trades." He
must be well informed on all mat-
ters concerning community im-
provement and have a working
knowledge of both federal and
local government.
At the present time the Cham-
ber of Commerce in Ann Arbor is
also working on the street dec-
orations for Christmas, trying to
solve the present traffic problem

and working on the tax programs
for this area. Many of these pro-
jects receive little publicity but
are important to the cowmunity
either in general appearance or
to the general well being of the
Has Difficulty Getting Funds
The Ann Arbor Chamber of
Commerce, as many others, has
difficulties receiving sufficient
funds for the work they do. All
local Chambers are merely volun-
teer organizations of businessmen
and so money isn't demanded of
them. Any aid that they do re-
ceive must be on a volunteer basis.
Bott said he believes that the
Ann Arbor Chamber of Com-
merce needs about $45,000 a year
to do all the work they would like
to. Last year they got only
