Chamber Working with City/County and Virginia's Gateway Region During COVID-19
On March 24th, Chamber staff participated in a conference call organized by Keith Boswell, CEO of Virginia's Gateway Region (VGR), a regional economic development organization.
The purpose of this call was to establish an emergency response task force comprised of regional economic development organizations, including VGR, Prince George County Economic Development, Hopewell City Economic Development, the Virginia Unemployment Office, local reps from the Small Business Administration and Small Business Development Center, Crater Planning District, Petersburg Area Regional Tourism, and others. Local government and economic development organizations are working hard to muster resources, gather information, and plan for the recovery of our regional economy post COVID-19.
We are currently working out of the office, but, you can reach Chamber CEO, Becky McDonough at 804.731.0902 (email firstname.lastname@example.org) or Daniel Jones at 804.536.3025 (email email@example.com).
