With the dramatic effects on business due to the COVID-19 epidemic it is critical that we form partnerships with our local leaders to keep businesses informed, prepared, and equipped. The Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber is partnering with the Economic Development Board (EDB) to accomplish this task by hosting ongoing Pierce County Business Webinar Meetings three times weekly. These calls will include presenters from south sound business leaders, elected leaders, and area experts providing their knowledge and expertise on key issues regarding the COVID-19 crisis.
These webinars are of the upmost importance and target the critical needs of our business community. Each of the webinar meetings will be administered and paid for by the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber and emceed by the EDB. Each meeting is prescheduled with presenters and topics of interest to the business community related to the COVID-19 crisis.
