CHAMBER-SPECIFIC INFORMATION

The Greater Green Bay Chamber is taking a lead role in preventing, and slowing, the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We recognize that we have an opportunity and a duty to reduce opportunities for Coronavirus exposure.

After much deliberation, and taking the latest Coronavirus information under consideration, the Chamber closed its office and staff are working remotely, effective Wednesday, March 18, 2020.

What does this mean? BUSINESS AS UN-USUAL.

We will continue to conduct business – just in a different fashion than usual as we work remotely from our respective homes.

  • Staff will maintain their regular work hours and be available during those hours for phone calls, emails, meetings by phone and videoconference, etc.
  • Staff will only participate in meetings via phone or video for the foreseeable future.
  • Events are postponed for the foreseeable future.

Please continue to reach out to us, whether via phone or email. You can find a list of all staff’s phone numbers and emails here: https://www.greatergbc.org/about-us/staff/

Chamber leadership will monitor Coronavirus information daily. We will update you, our valued membership, on any changes to the above practices, and we will notify you of a return to business as usual when that is appropriate.
