Hafa Adai Members,
Thank you for continuing to keep us abreast of how your businesses are doing. Some of you are well, some could be doing better, a few have closed shop. There are a vast number of our member businesses that are struggling to stay afloat. We have seen how this pandemic has caused major disruption in our global and especially our local economy. It is vastly changing and transforming the traditional ways we have conducted business, trained our workforce and delivered our products and services. Our public sector needs to do its part in making swift and dramatic changes in its size, in its service offering and support of private businesses to help keep our doors open for business and our residents employed.
The University of Guam is compiling information that will give us an idea of how the pandemic has impacted our economy. This can only be done with your help. We encourage you to take some time to complete the information in the survey link below. Thank you for your time and assistance.
We are finalizing details on a virtual general membership meeting this month on July 22nd with GDOE's Superintendent, Jon Fernandez. We are also working with EXIM (Export-Import Bank of the United States) who can assist local exporters with their exporting needs in these challenging times. We are looking at an August 5th webinar, so save the date!
Election season is heating up and we are arranging for opportunities for you to meet candidates virtually and learn more about their platforms. Stay tuned for information on these upcoming events.
If you would like your Guam Chamber to offer an event or activity that we are not currently offering, please contact us and let us know. We are happy to engage with you and support your efforts to keep your doors open.
Thank you for all your great support of our fellow business colleagues! Your local purchases however small, are greatly appreciated.
Happy weekend, Members - enjoy some down time. You deserve it.
