    A few quick updates on things we have been working on:

    • When our first stay-at-home order came out, we sent out a Business Impact Survey to our membership, as well as several Chamber partners across the state of Ohio.  We received nearly 700 responses on that survey!  We shared the responses with our local, state, and federal leaders and with those Chambers that also participated.  We hope that the initial results of this survey assisted our leaders with making decision about the overall impact of the business community.  (we will likely do another survey once the first waive of re-opening takes place)
    • We have signed onto multiple letters to our U.S. Congress representatives to restore funding to the PPP and EIDL loan programs to help our business community, and we have been part of over 5,000 Chambers and Associations that have encouraged our leaders to include us (501(c)6) organizations in these funding options.  Right now, we do not qualify and this will be a huge impact to many Chambers and Associations across the U.S. 
    • I have maintained connections with the City of Pickerington, Violet Township, and Fairfield County to ensure I know the impact of each of our communities and what concerns they are hearing from the business community as well.
    • We have shared countless emails with our members and the business community to provide updates about the latest information coming out from our State and Federal representatives.
    • We created a Pickerington Area Carry-out & Delivery Facebook page to promote and highlight the many restaurants that are still serving our community.

     

    Your Pickerington Area Chamber continues to work on your behalf on the local, state, and national levels. We are here for YOU.
