Chamber News
There are 79 days until Christmas, that is 11 weeks! If your budget is like mine, I need to start thinking about Christmas and budget a little each month for gifts.

In 2018, the United States had 30.2 million small businesses in operation which account for 99.9% of all businesses in the country. Small businesses have a huge impact on our society. It is up to each member of the community to support our economy. We do that by shopping local.

Reasons to shop local:
1.        Keeps Money in our Community, building a Stronger Economy
2.        Embrace what makes Jerome Unique.
3.        Creates jobs
4.        Supports our schools, police, and fire departments (through the taxes)
5.        You will get pampered. 

We challenge you to explore a small business in Jerome you have not been to yet. to take some time to go to a business you have not been to yet and learn what they have to offer. The experience will be rewarding as you may just find that treasure you have been searching for, but more importantly you will start to build a relationship with the local business owner.

Advocacy Watch
The U.S. Chamber announced a call to action for members of Congress to pass the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). As part of this, we sent a letter to all members of Congress urging them to engage local chambers of commerce and businesses in their districts to learn how the USMCA can help their communities.   Click here to read the letter , and see below for our tool kit on how you can help us in this effort. Furthermore, please keep us posted on anything you learn as you talk to your members of Congress about the USMCA.
