Have You Heard About Our Member Spotlight?

We are excited to begin a Member Spotlight feature on our Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn Pages as well as our newsletter. All we need from you is a photo of you or your business, a brief description of your business, and for you to answer the question, "Why did you join the chamber?"

We will then feature your business on our social media channels and tag you in our posts. See example attached. Our goal is to promote your business as well as inspire others to join our Chamber. 

Ready to participate? Just email your photo and information to Chamber member and project lead, Kristina Rust at hello@kristinarustphotography.com.

We look forward to featuring you!
A Message from the President
We're about to start a new year. That's usually a time for new beginnings and anticipation. This year, we'll start in COVID lockdown, with the increased pain that all small businesses are feeling at this time. We are anxiously awaiting the widespread distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine, but our incoming president has already warned that distribution may be delayed.

California has announced some small business grants, starting 12/30/2020. Please visit www.careliefgrant.com for information. And, with the latest version of the Federal COVID relief, there may be more funds available to small businesses, too. Stay tuned for more information.

I encourage you to support each other, do what you can do to be safe, avoid gatherings, and maintain your "social distancing" practices. Let's be hopeful that the vaccine doses come to our hospitals and doctors sooner than later, and we can all get our inoculations early in the year so we can get back to what we used to consider normal by mid-year.

In the meantime, please support your local businesses - take out from local restaurants, shopping from the local businesses that have weathered the storm, and saying hello when you get a chance. Most of all, on behalf of the Saratoga Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, I wish each of you a happy, healthy, safe, and fruitful new year. G'bye 2020!
