|Covid-19 Business Survey: We want to know how Covid-19 has impacted your business, and what you need to adapt and recover! Please take our short survey, developed by the Chamber and the Town of Windsor Economic Development Department.|
Our goals are to build a baseline of data from which to measure our recovery from the Covid-19 crisis, provide feedback to state and local policymakers regarding how Windsor businesses have been impacted, prioritize recovery initiatives, and connect participants with resources. Your participation in this short survey will be a great help to the Town and Chamber as we build a pathway to recovery. Click here to take the survey!
Building Resiliency: The Chamber is presenting two great talks next week to help is grow more resilient in different ways. At our next Virtual Roundtable this Monday from 12-1, we will be joined by Denise Whitford of the CT Small Business Development Center. Denise will discuss SBDC's Business Resiliency Toolkit, mechanisms for stabilizing your business, and preparing for the new normal. Click here to RSVP for the Roundtable.
Next Wednesday from 12-1, we will present a Virtual Lunch and Learn on another important resiliency topic. Jennifer Doutre, LCSW, Service Director at Community Health Resources, will speak to us about managing our mental health and staying resilient in the face of pandemic-related fear, stress, and isolation. Please have virtual lunch with us while Jennifer shares insights and tools for keeping healthy in this unprecedented time. Click here to register for Wednesday's Lunch and Learn.
Don't Forget About the Census: The 2020 Census continues, and with door-to-door canvassing out of the question, it's even more important that we encourage our employees and coworkers to participate. Connecticut receives $11 billion in funding from the federal government--and, more importantly, our town and state receive political representation--that is directly tied to our count. Anyone who has not filled out their census form can do so at https://my2020census.gov/.
Supporting Local Business: The Chamber has created two ways you can support local retail and restaurants through this pandemic. First, keep our Covid-19 Retail and Restaurant Guide handy for the latest hours, details, and specials from Chamber members. Second, enter our Takeout and Win promotion to get a chance at winning prizes while supporting Windsor restaurants!
