Message from the Board: Resilience

April 20, 2020

At the one-month anniversary of the Shelter in Place order, we just want to stop and take a moment to recognize each of you for the resilience you are demonstrating in the face of the challenges posed in the last several weeks.

We’ve heard from you with many stories of heartache and of hope. And through them all you have entrusted us to be your confidant, partner and advocate.

We don't have all the answers, but we are here for you! We want to express our appreciation for all of the partnership, communication and feedback that we have received from businesses, organizations, nonprofit groups, residents, and local, regional and statewide elected officials that have jumped in to lend support, resources, information and expertise.

The Chamber Cares InitiativeTM is the business resilience and COVID-19 impact response program of the Chamber of Commerce. The last four weeks have been unprecedented, but through, to and with our partners, the needs of our community have a voice, paths to navigate, and opportunities to collaborate and engage on behalf of each other and the greater communities in which they serve. Together we are stronger.

"Leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence." – Sheryl Sandberg, COO, Facebook.

We hope that you are staying healthy and keeping in good spirits.
