2020 has been anything but normal! The challenges over the past year have been significant for everyone ESPECIALLY the business community. That being said, 2020 has given us the opportunity to truly show the Chamber’s value to our members and to our community.
Since COVID-19 turned our world upside down in March, we have strived to stay abreast of all news, changes, and benefits that our members needed to be aware of in an effort to keep their businesses open. Whether it was mandates from the state, county, or health department, we kept lines of communication open with all of those partners so that we could provide up-to-date information as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Many of our members benefitted from various government loan and grant programs they may not otherwise have been aware of. MANY of our members relayed to us that being a part of our Chamber gave them the resources they needed to make it through the most challenging times, and a partner to connect with as they worked through the constantly changing processes and procedures.
As we look ahead to 2021 our hopes are that we can look forward to a brighter and less complex year, while shaking our fists at 2020 with confidence that we didn’t let it beat us!
