Dear Chamber Members and Board of Directors,

As you may already know, our March Membership Luncheon that was scheduled to take place on Tuesday, March 17 at the McNease Convention Center has been cancelled. If you have prepaid for this luncheon or are a luncheon sponsor you will receive a complete refund, beginning today.

In compliance with the CDC’s recommendation to not have groups of 50 or more people gather, we have made the tough choice to cancel the Business @ Happy Hour scheduled for Tuesday, March 24 at CTWP, and the reception for our new President/CEO scheduled for Thursday, March 26 at the Visitor Center.

Most of our volunteers in the Visitor Center are retirement age and are the most vulnerable to exposure to the virus. Therefore, we feel it is only fair to them to close the Visitor Center effective immediately until Monday, March 23.

For all Executive Committee Members and Board Members, our meetings scheduled for the week of March 23 will be conducted via conference call. We will provide call in information for all Executive Committee and Board Members later this week.

Sincerely,

Your Chamber of Commerce Staff
