Take Five: Resources & Best Practices from Today
#InThisTogether. Governor Holcomb announced our state's COVID-19 campaign yesterday and I like it. We are all #InThisTogether . . . . a battle no one would have predicted just a few short months ago. As we continue the fight, below are the Take 5 resources from today to help you on the front-line of this economic battle:

  • Fundraising in Hard Times: As you focus on positioning your Chamber for after the storm, make sure to take time to read this great guest article submitted by Chris Mead (Magicians of Main Street).

  • Stimulating The Local Economy: It's easy to find four friends of the Chamber to donate $175 each, right? Your Chamber can roll out a campaign that rewards people to shop local. The Madison Area Chamber kicked off their Money for Madison Giveaway yesterday and this will run for the entire month.

  • Building /Manufacturing Ventilators: If you have a manufacturer who would be/is interested and can re-tool their production Medtronic plc (NYSE:MDT), the global leader in medical technology, has agreed to release their prints, plans and source codes to build ventilators. Click for details.

  • Creative Virtual Events: Looking for some ideas to beef up your on-line connections? This topic was a recent blog post that shares five great ideas chambers should be doing now.

  • #INThisTogether: Governor Holcomb announced the #INThisTogether campaign yesterday to help fight COVID-19. Show your Chamber's support by sharing the hashtag #InThisTogether on social media.

Business is essential & now more than ever our chamber of commerce professionals are working hard to help business stay in business. Thank you for all that you do.
