A Message From Our President/CEO:

Happy Friday Morning Chamber Members:

I want to bring you just a few announcements from the Chamber.

Most of you may already be aware, but after lengthy discussions with our Executive Board and looking at the guidance given from the State of Illinois and IDPH and submitting an alternative plan for Chili Cook-off, it is unfortunate that the Chamber had to cancel the 2020 Chili Cook-off. You can read the official press release on our website. However, we will still be hosting the 5K run, but it will be virtual. We encourage you to share this information and sign up to support the Chamber. 

During the same discussion with the E-Board, again considering all of our members' health and safety, we have made the decision to cancel ALL in-person events for the remainder of 2020 and will have to look at the beginning of 2021 as well. This includes all committee meetings. The Chamber will make every effort to continue bringing valued Zoom meetings to our members and continue serving them in every capacity we can.

Next week we will be sending a survey out to our members and encourage each of you to take 5 minutes to fill it out so we have additional guidance on how we can better serve our members during this unprecedented time.

We know this is a trying time for all of our members and while we all miss the social interactions, the liability of one of our members contacting COVID-19 weighed heavily on our decision.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
