The Michigan Irish American Chamber of Commerce would like to thank MIACC founder and President, Dave O’Connor along with Vice President, Hon. Dan Ryan for their hard work and dedication in building such a strong ethnic chamber of commerce as the MIACC. Over the past 4 plus years, Dave and Dan have worked tirelessly to develop, build and market such a strong member base to promote Irish American owned businesses and create a networking structure to promote Irish American commerce as well as our Irish culture and heritage in the metro Detroit area and throughout Michigan. Dave O’Connor started the MIACC as a thought and a dream and through his commitment he has seen his dream become a reality. As Dave and Dan step aside (due to term limits), they can do so with great pride that their efforts have built a solid foundation for the continued growth of the Michigan Irish American Chamber of Commerce. The Board of Directors wish to thank Dave and Dan for all that they have done for the MIACC and wish them continued success. Dave will continue to serve as a member of the Board of Directors.
