Announcing the first Coastal Corral – Legislative Meet Up for the Entire Coast – View the event live on Facebook HERE.
Here is the ZOOM information – we recommend you use FACEBOOK as the ZOOM capacity is limited to 300. If you must zoom here you go:
The Florence Area Chamber of Commerce in partnership with coastal chambers including Seaside, Astoria-Warrenton, Tillamook Area, Lincoln City, Depoe Bay, Newport, Waldport, Reedsport-Winchester Bay, Bay Area, Bandon, and Brookings are excited to bring to the coast it’s first “Coastal Corral”, Friday May 1st at 10:00am DST.
Coastal Chambers are convening US and State Representatives to update and share information to the business communities along the coast. This FREE online panel will be available on ZOOM and Facebook Live. It will also be recorded for those unable to attend “live”. Quick links to attend the event will be available at FlorenceChamber.com under the events tab the morning of the panel.
As we “Coasties” know, coastal communities face different challenges than other rural areas and vastly different challenges than larger metro areas. Many coastal communities rely heavily on tourism as their primary industry. With social distancing, what does it look like to re-open for business? Restaurants, retail, casinos and transportation all face unknown restrictions and logistics for success. All non-essential businesses that are reopening are looking for resources and support.
Join us to hear from our hard-working representatives about what they are doing to support truly “miniature” businesses along with small and larger employers with a focus on the coast. We are thrilled to announce that US Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden along with State Senators Betsy Johnson and Arnie Roblan and State Representatives David Gomberg and Tiffiny Mitchell will be seated in this “Corral” to share knowledge and resources. This dynamic panel will be moderated by Lane Community College’s Florence Campus Dean, Dr. Russ Pierson.
As chambers, it is our mission to be catalysts for business development and growth, conveners of leaders and influencers and champions for a stronger community.
