Message from the President & CEO
We understand that times feel quite uncertain and some businesses, including us, have to reevaluate their standard operating procedures. While the restrictions are to slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), our primary worry is for the health of businesses in our community. After all, a successful community is because of a thriving business community. We are all going to be feeling the effects of COVID-19 for a long while and instead of dwelling with that looming fact, we decided to sit down as a team and work on some solutions for our members.
The Lodi District Chamber of Commerce is extremely lucky to partner with over 750 local businesses and over 70% of our members are small business by definition. It is our goal in these coming weeks to be of help to our members and passing on as many resources to assist you all during this time. Our goal is to unite and assist in any way we can. Below, you will find resources and links to varying websites in the hopes that you will share these resources with your employees, friends, family members, and customers. Lodi is an amazing community; we have seen economic hardships in the past and have pulled together to persevere. We will do the same with COVID-19. Stay safe & healthy and we will come out of this #LodiStrong.
