If your company or business is interested in sponsoring any of the above events, you will notice lots of new choices this year! We have added some to accommodate the virtual world we have been living in since the spring of 2020. There is also more options for connectivity within our community partners to help strengthen all of Grand Ledge.
2020 was quite the year!
What a whirlwind for our community, the state, the country and the world in 2020. As a Chamber, our goal has been to support the city, the community, and local businesses to ensure economic development within the Grand Ledge Public School District. In the past, we have done this by hosting events in the community as well as providing resources to businesses and connecting them with potential customers.
Since March we have had to stop all community events and the Chamber has been focusing on helping businesses just survive. We are so thankful for the support we have in the community from our members that have enable US to stay afloat and provide these services to local businesses.
In 2020 the Chamber has:
- helped connect businesses with financial resources
- referred businesses to safety protocols
- interviewed local citizens on why they love Grand Ledge
- interviewed businesses about their programs
- sold T-shirts online to support local businesses. Click here to purchase one!
- educated ourselves on protocols and updated mandates
- worked in conjunction with local community partners to ensure we are maximizing our relationships
- stayed on top of executive orders
- been a resource for small business relief Click here for a list of resources!
It has been business as usual for the Chamber even if it looks different now. Our operations and event committees have been meeting regularly to help decide the future of our 2021 events. It has not been an easy task in a constantly evolving situation.
Help support your local Grand Ledge Community small businesses with the purchase of a "WE ARE GRAND LEDGE" t-shirt. For each item sold, $8 will be donated to the Grand Ledge Chamber of Commerce to be distributed among the Chamber member small businesses in the Grand Ledge Community. Go Comets!
