Preparing for the Coronavirus
The Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce is committed to providing a safe working environment for employees and members, and to minimizing the potential economic and business impact of COVID-19 (the “Novel Coronavirus”) for our Chamber members.
This situation is both fast-moving and in a state of near constant change, but we are relying on the guidance of health officials to be as prepared as possible. To that end, we've put together a special webpage with more information.
Education Resource Center for Employers
As school districts around the region begin the process of reopening their doors to students for the 2020-2021 school year - in a variety of forms - both parents and employers have a wide range of questions.
The Chamber wants to help by working to gather as much information as possible in one centralized location: our Education Resource Center for Employers. This Resource Center will be updated regularly as new information is made available or updated.
There are many facets to the Chamber, and we want you to know about them all. Click any of the links below to learn about how the Chamber can help your business.
Our Response During the Pandemic
The Chamber is always advocating for the needs and priorities of our members with lawmakers at all levels of government. But during this pandemic, you needed even more. You needed us to be the voice of business in a way that none of us could have imagined so we added this critical element of advocacy to the work we already do.
We tried to meet our members in the moment you were experiencing and bring you rapidly changing information and resources to help you navigate the uncharted territory we currently face. Here's a look at how our members have responded to these new services.
