Members, Investors, and Friends of Our Community,

We are following the recommended CDC guidelines in our office to reduce the spread of any virus through proper hygiene and office cleanliness. The health and safety of our employees and our office visitors is the utmost priority.

Chamber and EDC events and programming will continue as scheduled, until if/when circumstances change that necessitate cancellation or rescheduling. In regards to our events and programming, we ask that if you are ever experiencing flu-like symptoms, put yours and others' health first and stay home. This same understanding is, and has already been, in place internally with our staff.
