"It does not matter how slow you go, as long as you do not stop."

Dear Chamber Member,
Effective immediately, the Kendallville Area Chamber of Commerce will be observing the following safety precautions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic:
  • No walk-ins will be allowed at the Chamber office until further notice.  The Chamber staff will remain available via phone or email during normal businesses hours.
  • All Chamber meetings, workshops, and events are tentatively postponed or canceled until at least April 30th.  Some meetings may be scheduled as a conference call/remote webinar in the future, as the need arises.  The Chamber will continue to monitor the situation and adjust accordingly.
  • The Chamber's Annual Banquet, schedule for Thursday, April 23rd, has been postponed until the fall (date TBD).  If you have already purchased tickets, your purchased will be honored at the newly scheduled event.  If, however, you would like a refund, please email Lisa at .
The Chamber is working diligently to provide members with the necessary tools and resources to navigate during this difficult time.   If you have ideas or suggestions, please feel free to reach out.
As always, our #1 priority is supporting the local economy and our member businesses.

Do you anticipate being impacted or has your business already been impacted by the coronavirus?

The Administration has allocated $50 billion to the Small Business Administration (SBA) for Economic Injury Disaster Loans. For Hoosiers to gain access to this funding, we need to collect small business economic impact data  from every county in Indiana so that Governor Holcomb can declare an economic injury disaster.
We are working diligently to gain access to this funding and would greatly appreciate your help. 
Information obtained from this form will only be used to assist in requesting an economic injury disaster declaration from SBA and identifying greatest areas of need. Once a disaster declaration is made for designated areas within Indiana, information on the application process for Economic Injury Disaster Loan assistance will be updated at
