Panel Discussion

Reinventing Your Business in 2021

We will have two Panel discussions: Panel 1 will be Community and Government Resources Assisting Businesses Survive COVID-19.  The panel   will consist of members who are experts in their own fields, discussing the numerous resources available to businesses needed to overcome the challenges of the pandemic.  Panel 2 will be How My Business Reinvented Itself After COVID-19, where several businesses just like yours, will describe how they adapted to an unknown environment and re-adjusted their business models to meet the challenge.          

Meet the members of our Panels.
