A new Flushing Chamber of Commerce is in the works after an older iteration was officially disbanded in February following a long period of inactivity.

Several community organizations and Queens lawmakers were set to announce the initial steps that will form the chamber this week.

The organizations that will make up the host committee include the Flushing Chinese Business Association, the Korean American Chamber of Commerce, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the Flushing Indian Merchants Association, the Union Street Merchants Association and One Flushing.

The advisory board will include politicians and the heads of Flushing businesses.
