During these unprecedented and trying times we have all been impacted through COVID-19 and for many the affect has resulted in a dramatic decline in profit or temporary closure. As a Chamber even though we are still active providing updated information and arranging e-blasts on behalf of members, conducting webinars etc, we recognize that our ability to fully service the members through our normal means and to provide face to face networking has been affected.
With this in mind I am pleased to advise that your Board has made the decision to extend all future renewals for 2020 to the 31st of January 2021 by which time we hope that life resembles some form of normality and our businesses are better positioned.
If you sign up as a new member during this time your membership will not be due for payment until the 31st January 2021.
The exit from this pandemic and its affects will be challenging and for many the repositioning of your brand may also be a challenge. If from a Marketing and Branding perspective you would like some free advice or an external set of eyes, one of our board members Chris Hekeik from ModeMedia has kindly offered his services. Chris is happy to speak to any of our members to help better position them for what may well be a very different environment in coming months post COVID-19. Please do not hesitate to contact Chris directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
I would also like to take this opportunity to again stress that we are Still Open for Business and should you require any support from the Chamber then we are available for you. Please do not hesitate to email me at email@example.com if we can help in any way even if its just to have a conversation.
