The association's co-president, Myra Baird Herce, said that the decision was a long time coming as many new business organizations in the downtown Flushing area have emerged in recent years.
"It isn't like the commercial strip doesn't have representation in the area, because they do," said Herce. "It's the end of an era for this group, but it was time to move on."
Since 1932, the Chamber has participated in many major projects affecting Flushing, including the restoration of RKO Keith's on Main Street, the re-purposing of Municipal Parking Lot No. 1, as well as the development of Willets Point. Herce believes that area is very well represented and she is hopeful that these projects will eventually materialize.
Other business organizations in the area include the Flushing Business Improvement District, Korean American Small Business Service Center of New York, Flushing Chinese Business Association, Taiwan Merchants Association, One Flushing and the Flushing Development Center.
Herce sees the plethora of Flushing business advocates as a major asset to the community and she is positive a bright future waits for the area. She called Flushing a "boom town with a rich entrepreneurial spirit," and she is positive it will thrive.
Before joining the FCCBA more than 20 years ago, Herce was the director of the Downtown Flushing Development Corporation, which encouraged businesses to come to Flushing and set up shop.
After a number of years serving as co-president with Richard Gelman, who moved out of state, and Jack Hogan, who passed away, Herce became the lone voice of the Chamber.

"It was not do-able," said Myra Baird Herce, who was then director of the Downtown Flushing Business Development Corp.
"The corporation is extinct.Why?Because my mandate was to put in a BID, and I could not, so funding stopped," said Herce, the president of the Flushing Chamber of Commerce and Business Association.
Things have changed.Thursday, Mayor Bloomberg signed a law creating the Downtown Flushing Transit Hub Business Improvement District.
"Fortunately, now the time is right, and, to be very honest, it would not have happened at all without Councilman [John] Liu," Herce said recently as she walked along Roosevelt Ave. in the heart of what is now the city's 45th Business Improvement District.
We took the experience that Myra had gained from the earlier efforts and the experience of other leaders in the community.
We want to be ecumenical, so we say 'holiday decorations,' and my thought was to have holiday decorations up from Thanksgiving to after the Lunar New Year," said Herce.
There's work to be done, some point out.
